One of the best series I’ve seen in a while apocalypto meets walking dead. Cleverly done, using the Polynesian culture. I watched the movie which I can only assume this series drew its inspiration from. Just tweeking it enough to stand on its own. It’s a shame if there wasn’t a second season. I’ve gotten invested, and not to get a return on it would be a lost.
just read an article that says Shudder may not renew The Deadlands for a season 2!!! SAY IT AIN'T SO!! I'm obsessed with this show you have to renew it!!!
This show was awesome. I loved the actors and the story line. I can’t wait to see more episodes of the Maori vs. The Supernatural. I hope it gets renewed.
PLEASE renew this for a second season. This is one of the coolest series I have ever watched. 10/10 I need to see Waka and Mehe save the world.
I love this show. More i love the cast and the fact that its passed on the Polynesian people. I don't think their has been a show laid out like this, Shudder/AMC if you see this DO NOT get lazy with the writing or the budget, this is a great concept without a lot of room to expand and grow. Keep it up, Shudder.
