Amazon announced it has greenlit a third season of the original dramatic series The Man in the High Castle. The show also stars Battlestar Galactica alums Rick Worthy (starting season 1), Michael Hogan and Callum Keith Rennie (both starting season 2). Seasons one and two are now available on Amazon Prime Video
Series synopsis: The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. Taking place in 1962—in an alternate history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II and subdivided the world, splitting the United States into two powers, the Greater Nazi Reich and the Japanese Pacific States—the series follows characters from both sides whose destinies intertwine after coming into contact with a series of propaganda films that show a vastly different history to that of their own.
The pilot premiered on January 15, 2015, and was Amazon’s “most-watched since the original series development program began. The second season of ten episodes premiered on December 16, 2016.
The Man in the High Castle stars Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank and DJ Qualls. The series was developed by Frank Spotnitz
Eric Overmyer, who executive produced Amazon’s popular drama series Bosch, will take over as showrunner for season 3. The second season completed the production of season 2 without a showrunner after the departure of Frank Spotnitz.
No release date for the series’ third season has been announced.
