Amazon releases new images and details for The Man in the High Castle season 2
Ahead of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle launching its highly anticipated second season this December, the streaming service has indulged fans with a number of exclusive new images and a rather detailed synopsis for the Ridley Scott-produced show.
Taking its basis from the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name, The Man in the High Castle‘s debut season explored the concept of a United States controlled by Nazi Germany and Japan, had the Allies lost in World War II.
Here’s what Amazon has revealed of Season 2 so far:
“Season two resumes with Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) facing the consequences of her decision to betray the Resistance and allow Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), a suspected Nazi agent, to escape the Pacific States with a film originally bound for the Man in the High Castle. Joe himself returns a hero to the Reich and finds himself thrust into the Nazi capital of Berlin, face to face with the father who abandoned him. Meanwhile, Frank Frink (Rupert Evans) becomes increasingly radicalized and drawn further into the Resistance after seeing images of his own execution in the mysterious films.
With political tensions mounting between Germany and Japan, Trade Minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) begins to regret his success in smuggling nuclear technology from the Reich and seeks solace in the strange new world he discovered at the end of season one. Meanwhile, Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) struggles to reconcile the values of the Reich with the deteriorating health of his son — all while tasked with a mission from the Führer for which failure is not an option. And Chief Inspector Kido (Joel de la Fuente) begins to take greater interest in the Man in the High Castle, the films, and how Juliana Crain is connected to it all…”
The Man in the High Castle season 2 premieres Friday, December 16 on Amazon Prime Video.
