Amazon debuted the first trailer for season two of The Man in the High Castle at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con, with executive producer Ridley Scott supplying the introduction to the new season’s teaser video. The series is based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and stars DJ Qualls, Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Rupert Evans, and Bella Heathcote. Season one of the critically acclaimed drama is available now on Amazon Prime and season two is currently in production.
The Plot: 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.
