The second trailer for the much anticipated second season of Amazon Original series, The Man in the High Castle – which premieres in the UK on Prime Video on Friday 16 December – is now live
The critically acclaimed first season saw an alternate, post World War II world in turmoil, where the allied forces have lost power to the Nazis, and the United States, as well as much of the world, being split between Japan and Germany; the major hegemonic states. Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) became entangled with the resistance after her half-sister Trudy was murdered after giving her an intriguing film reel, entitled ‘The Grasshopper Lies Heavy’.
In the upcoming season, the weight of war weighs heavy with the delicate peace treaty between Germany and Japan hanging in the balance, as Japan puts plans in place to construct an atomic bomb. With Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), Frank Frink (Rupert Evans), Juliana Crain and John Smith (Rufus Sewell) each setting out on individual missions to prevent the mass destruction, a butterfly effect is triggered whereby just one small action has the potential for wide-scale impact. But will they be able to succeed? And just who is The Man in The High Castle?
New to the series is Nicole Becker (played by Bella Heathcote) who is joined by returning characters including Tagomi (Hiroyuki Tagawa), Inspector Kido (Joel De La Fuente) and Ed McCarthy (DJ Qualls).
The Man in the High Castle is based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history book and questions what would happen if the Allied Powers had lost World War II.
