Amazon has announced a third season pick-up of scripted drama The Man in the High Castle.” Debuting on Jan. 15, 2015, the series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. Eric Overmyer (“Treme,” “The Affair”) will serve as showrunner and executive producer for this new season.
Seasons one and two of “The Man in the High Castle” are now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany and Austria via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at http://amazon.com/originals.
Season two of the one-hour drama continues to explore what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. While Germany controls much of the East Coast and Japan controls the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains have become a “neutral zone”—and ground zero for a resistance, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle.” While some citizens struggle against the fear, oppression and inequality, others accept their lives, as compromised and unfulfilling as they might be. But after a series of enigmatic films surface depicting a world vastly different from their own, some begin to question the very nature of their reality.
“The Man in the High Castle” stars Alexa Davalos (“Mob City”), Rupert Evans (“American Pastoral”), Luke Kleintank (“Pretty Little Liars”),DJ Qualls (“Z Nation”), Joel De La Fuente (“Hemlock Grove”), Brennan Brown (“Focus:), Bella Heathcote (“The Neon Demon”), and Callum Keith (“Longmire”).
