Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history, Amazon‘s The Man in the High Castle announcement today that The Man in the High Castle season two will arrive with ten new episode via Amazon Prime in 2016.
The series considers the question of what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Almost 20 years after that loss, the United States and much of the world has now been split between Japan and Germany, the major hegemonic states. But the tension between these two powers is mounting, and this stress is playing out in the western U.S. Through a collection of characters in various states of posing (spies, sellers of falsified goods, others with secret identities), The Man in the High Castle investigates life and history as it relates to authentic and manufactured reality.
Stars Alexa Davalos (“Mob City”) as Juliana Crain, Luke Kleintank (“Pretty Little Liars”) as Joe Blake, Rupert Evans (The Village) as Frank Frink, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Mortal Kombat Legacy) as Tagomi, Joel De La Fuente (“Hemlock Grove”) as Inspector Kido, Rufus Sewell (“Eleventh Hour”) as John Smith and DJ Qualls (“Z Nation”) as Ed McCarthy.
