Amazon Prime’s “Man in the High Castle” is returning after nearly two years away, and the trailer for the third season shows the Nazis are not satisfied with having conquered the alternate reality the show is set in.
They want to “invade and conquer” every alternate reality that exists.
The drama is adapted from Philip K. Dick’s science fiction novel of the same name, which takes place in an alternate reality where the Allied Powers were defeated in World War II, leading to the dissolution of America, split under Nazi Germany and Imperial Japanese control.
The first two seasons, however, make the case that the reality the show finds itself in is just one of many possibilities, with the eponymous “Man in the High Castle” having film reels as proof, including the one that we all actually live in, where the U.S. and the Allied powers won the war and the Nazis were defeated.
In third season it appears the show will double down on this, with the Nazis building some kind of machine that will let them to travel to these alternate realities, for obviously nefarious means. The trailer is set to up-and-coming Berlin-based artist Lxandra’s reimagining of U2’s hit song “Pride (In the Name of Love).” This is the first time U2 has allowed “Pride (In the Name of Love)” to be covered and used commercially.
Eric Overmyer takes over as showrunner for the third season, after not having one in the second season following creator Frank Spotnitz’s departure. “Man in the High Castle” was among Amazon’s first original series. The series stars Alexa Davalos, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Rufus Sewell, Chelah Horsdal, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls and Rupert Evans.
