Amazon is bringing its acclaimed series The Man In The High Castle to an end with the forthcoming fourth and final season. Based on the book by Philip K. Dick, the series tells the compelling story of an alternative USA which saw a very different outcome to World War II. Developed for Television by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), The Man In The High Castle has been a huge success in the early days of Amazon producing original content. Well, I say early days, but it was only back in 2015 which was the same year as fellow Amazon hit Bosch launched to universal acclaim. Amazon Studios' Jennifer Salke broke the news of the conclusion of the series via a statement.
“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.
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.”
Amazon Studios also partnered with Executive producer Isa Dick Hackett (who is also Philip K Dick's daughter) on the anthology series Electric Dreams. Isa echoed the sentiment of Salke's comments and teased more adaptations to come.
“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. 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 Man In The High Castle returns to Amazon later this year.
