“The Man in the High Castle” will continue its reign on Amazon for another season.
Announced during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel today, the streaming service has gone ahead and given “The Man in the High Castle” a season 4 renewal ahead of its third season premiere. In addition, the show’s creative team has also announced that said third season will make its long-awaited debut on Amazon later this year, on October 5.
Created by Frank Spotnitz and based on the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name, “The Man in the High Castle” takes place in an alternate reality, where the Axis powers won World War II and were successful in taking over the world. It focuses on an ensemble of characters living in an Axis-ruled version of the United States, where Germany and Japan had divided the country into separate political regions.
Its large ensemble includes Rufus Sewell, Alexa Davalos, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Rupert Evans, Stephen Root, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, and more.
While Amazon – like many other streaming platforms – doesn’t release its viewership numbers, the streaming service has been open in touting “The Man in the High Castle” as one of its most successful original series to date, making this early renewal less of a surprise.
Following the climactic end of its second season, which saw the world narrowly avoiding a nuclear apocalypse, the series promises to pick up where it left off in even more explosive fashion. Whether or not the series will continue at the same pace and scale of its previous 2 seasons, though, with new showrunner Eric Overmyer taking over, will have to wait to be seen.
