Set to premiere in the fall, the six-episode series is loosely based on the Chinese tale Journey To The West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into The Badlands tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Daniel Wu) and a young boy, M.K. (Aramis Knight), who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Csokas will play Quinn, the most powerful baron in the Badlands, who spent his youth patrolling the Badlands and killing. Once a great fighter, he now reigns in power, and nobody who crosses him lives to tell the tale.
