Amazon Original TV series The Man In The High Castle has been renewed for season 3. Amazon has revealed a release date for the third season which is expected to air later in 2017 similar to the last two seasons of the show.
The series will be produced by “Bosch” executive producer Eric Overmyer after the unexpected departure of Frank Spotnitz.
The Man In The High Castle is an “alternate history series” loosely based on the works of Philip K. Dick. The third season will continue to explore the life in the United States in the 1960’s (if it were taken over by the Axis powers).
Jason O’Mara will be joining the show this season after leaving the famous TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He will be a series regular with a leading role named Wyatt Price. His character’s Irish family escaped Europe to New York when the Nazis started dominating. Price survived in the Nuetral Zone posing as a black marketer but believes in America before the war.
The rest of the cast was also announced including Michael Gaston moving from a recurring role to a series regular. Gaston plays Mark Sampson who is the owner of a hardware store owner and is friends with Frank. He is also an underground worshiper of the “Jewish faith”.
The Emmy-award winning series sent Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank) to Germany in season two to learn more about his past. Kleintank said, “We’re showing more of the world and slowly putting in pieces of that. I’m surprised and intrigued to see how all that just opens up a whole new Pandora’s box.”
Nicole Becker (Bella Heathcote) who is Joe Blake’s love interest in season 2 will also be seen in the new season. Talking about her character, Heathcote said, “I’d want my character to find a way to be a feminist under the regime, try and change the regime from within. That would be a great way to go.”
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa who plays Trade Minister Tagomi was also noted saying, “Tell the truth, be responsible, it’s okay… if we put the best of what the east is and best of what the west is, we’re unstoppable.”
