Amazon Prime Video will be ending the critically acclaimed The Man in the High Castle with the upcoming fourth season. Amazon confirmed the series will return this fall for season four, and that this new season will be the show’s last.
Filming is just about to conclude in Vancouver on season four starring Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove), Brennan Brown (Focus), Chelah Horsdal (You Me Her), Jason O’Mara (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Rufus Sewell (Victoria). Also starring in the series’ final season are Frances Turner, Clé Bennett, Rich Ting, David Sakurai, Carter MacIntyre, and Bruce Locke.
The Man in the High Castle is based on the Philip K. Dick’s novel and was developed for television by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files). Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Richard Heus, Isa Dick Hackett, Wesley Strick, Daniel Percival, and David Scarpa are the executive producers. Percival and Scarpa are co-showrunners for season four.
“It has been a great privilege to work alongside our extraordinary High Castle team, in partnership with David Zucker and Scott Free, to bring my father’s classic novel to life, particularly during this tumultuous period in our real world. I believe fans will be thrilled and satisfied by the epic conclusion we have in store for them,” stated Isa Dick Hackett. “I am very grateful for the ongoing support from Amazon as we produce this final season, and look forward to building on this extremely successful partnership. Stay tuned; there’s more to come!”
“The undertaking of High Castle has been simply extraordinary from the start: the seven years it took to land an ideal home at Amazon – the behind-the-scenes artistry which has been as awe-inspiring to experience as hopefully the work on-screen so powerfully delivered – and an audience whose high standard to meet was our unyielding goal,” said executive producer David Zucker. “It’s all gratitude to the talent, who persevered and so masterfully excelled, to Amazon for their deep support, and to Isa and her team, for the trust and valued partnership in which we’ve thrived every step of the way.”
“We are incredibly proud of all of the hard work from the massively talented executive producers, cast, crew, and everyone who has worked on The Man in the High Castle over the years,” added Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “With production ongoing on our fourth and final season, we can’t wait for fans to see how this final chapter in the story unfolds. The Man in the High Castle helped define Amazon Prime Video in the genre space, and we are grateful and excited that we’ll continue to be in business with Isa and Electric Shepherd Productions for future Philip K. Dick adaptations.”
The Man in the High Castle explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. The final season of The Man in the High Castle will be rocked by war and revolution. The Resistance becomes a full-blown rebellion, driven by Juliana Crain’s (Davalos) visions of a better world. A new Black insurgent movement emerges to fight the forces of Nazism and imperialism.
As empires teeter, Chief Inspector Takeshi Kido (De La Fuente) will find himself torn between his duty to his country and the bonds of family. Meanwhile, Reichsmarschall John Smith (Sewell) will be drawn towards the portal the Nazis have built to another universe, and the tantalizing possibility of stepping through a gateway to the path not taken.
