    Internationally, the series premiered in Australia on November 17, 2015, on Showcase. In Germany and the UK, the series is available through Amazon Prime Instant Video with each episode accessible the day after the US air date. BBC America began airing double episodes on August 20, 2016, at 10pm ET.


    Into the Badlands has received mixed reviews from critics. As of March 9, 2017, the Rotten Tomatoes rating of season 1 is 53%, based on reviews from 37 critics, with an average rating of 4.6/10. The site's critical consensus states: "Into the Badlands is loaded with off-kilter potential that's left largely unfulfilled—although its well-choreographed action sequences should satisfy martial arts fans." Metacritic gives the season a score of 54 out of 100, based on reviews from 29 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".

    Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter gave a generally positive review and wrote, "AMC finds a bloody, fun and entertaining non-zombie counterpart to The Walking Dead and turns Sundays into an escapist red zone." Maureen Ryan of Variety wrote, "The action scenes scattered throughout Into the Badlands are not just stirringly presented, they represent a test passed with flying, and bloody, colors. This efficient AMC series is an homage to classic Samurai films and kinetic action fare churned out by Hong Kong maestros of furious fists, and if the TV drama had failed to meet the standards set by the sturdiest examples of those genres, it would have seemed superfluous at best. Fortunately, star Daniel Wu is more than up to the task of occupying the center of this streamlined story of vengeance, tyranny and roundhouse kicks."
