Fans of the hit Philip K. Dick adapted series The Man In The High Castle recieved a ton of great news regarding one of the most talked about Amazon series. The show will be renewed for a fourth season. This news comes with the release of the season 3 trailer as well as the long awaited premiere date for the highly anticipated third season. All episodes of the new season will premiere on Amazon Prime October 5th.
The show is coming off a close call at the end of its sophomore season. A nuclear Holocaust almost occurred that would have resulted in a catastrophic genocide, but was successfully stopped thanks to the work of Rufus Stewell’s Obergruppenführer Smith of the Third Reich. It also saw Alexa Davalos, who plays the ever resilient Julia, being introduced to a familiar face by the man in the High Castle himself, played by the magnificent Stephen Root. This has lead fans to highly anticipate when the aftermath would finally get to be seen as well as how much longer the story would last.
Man In The High Castle showcases an alternate reality where the allies lose the World War II. Japan and The Nazi’s end up splitting the United States, which no longer exists. A small resistance group attempts to take down the Reich and the Japanese Empire. During all this, mysterious film reels showcasing footage of alternate versions of reality begin to pop up. Both sides will do whatever it takes to unlock the secrets behind the films which have to do with traveling to alternate dimensions.
The next season of the series will be a race to see who uncovers the secrets of the multiverse first, The Nazis or the Resistance. Season 3 will go from war story to saving the world from evil getting its hands on the technology that could inevitably lead to inter-dimensional travel. The thought of Nazi’s taking over every dimension is nothing short of horrifying.
This powerful, thought provoking Emmy winning drama hits on a lot of issues society deals with today, despite taking place in an alternate universe. The shows next season teases a declaration of “Fight For The World You Want,” a message that is becoming more relevant every time viewers turn on the news today. Armed with its cultural relevance, the series is solid balance of authentic Philip K. Dick science fiction and post World War II period piece that should be on everyones watch list.
Every episode of the new season of The Man in The High Castle will be available on Amazon Prime on October 5th.
