For the second season, Into the Badlands picked up production and moved from New Orleans, Louisiana to Dublin, Ireland, where I had an opportunity to visit the sets, speak with the cast and creative team, get an up-close look at the Widow’s (Emily Beecham) gorgeous gowns, and see them in action as we observed filming on one of the series signature fight scenes.
