The new official trailer for Amazon Prime Video’s The Man in the High Castle season three features Lxandra’s version of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love).” The song shouldn’t work but it does, capturing the tone of the series’ upcoming third season.
Commenting on the song’s use in season three, Amazon Studios Head of Marketing Mike Benson said, “‘Pride (In the Name of Love)’ is a powerful, emotional and cross generational song of political resistance, and it is a natural fit for The Man in the High Castle. This song ties in perfectly to themes in season three including those of hope, heroism and the importance of fighting for the world that you want.”
According to Amazon, this is the first time U2’s allowed “Pride” to be covered and used commercially.
The cast is led by Alexa Davalos (Mob City) and includes Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars), DJ Qualls (Z Nation), Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove), Brennan Brown (Focus), Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon) Chelah Horsdal (You Me Her), and Jason O’Mara (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Revenge), and Rufus Sewell (Victoria).
Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) developed the series and Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Richard Heus, Isa Dick Hackett, and Daniel Percival are the season three executive producers. Eric Overmyer (Treme, Bosch) is the showrunner and also executive produces.
Season three will premiere on October 5, 2018.
The Plot: Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, The Man in the High Castle explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Season three of the Emmy award-winning The Man in the High Castle finds Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) grappling with her destiny after seeking safety in the Neutral Zone. Realizing that their fates are intertwined, she works with Trade Minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) to interpret the mystery of the last remaining films.
Meanwhile, as tensions between the Reich and the Empire continue to rise, Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank) returns from Berlin and is sent on a diplomatic mission to San Francisco, where he and Juliana reunite and come to a turning point in their relationship. Also in the new season, Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) finds himself celebrated by Nazi high society, but political forces are closing in as North American Reischsmarschall Lincoln Rockwell and J. Edgar Hoover plot against him. Helen (Chelah Horsdal) takes drastic action to protect her family while they struggle with the aftermath of Thomas’ death, and Smith learns of a shocking and ambitious new Nazi program that has personal and global ramifications.
