Amazon’s adaptation of Philip K Dick’s novel The Man In The High Castle was one of our favourite TV series of last year, so it was great to see it get renewed, and it’s even better to catch this brief glimpse of Season 2, courtesy of San Diego Comic-Con.
While it doesn’t exactly give much away or resolve any of last season’s cliffhangers, it does show that the story is far from over, promising to delve even further into the mythos beyond the book than Season 1 did. If it continues at the same standard than that can only be a good thing.
Still, much more information was revealed at the panel, among it being that Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) has to become “a chameleon in order to survive” after her ordeal last year, and that the apparent shift into our reality experienced by Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa’s Tagomi wasn’t a dream sequence. Mysterious.
Below is the official synopsis for The Man In The High Castle:
Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, one-hour drama series The Man in the High Castle explores 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 rebellion, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle.” 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.
Season 2 will see the return of cast members Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, Rupert Evans, Rufus Sewell, Arnold Chun, Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa and Lee Shorten, as well as the addition of new cast member Bella Heathcote.
An air date for The Man In The High Castle: Season 2 is yet to be announced. For all the latest TV news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
