The Man in the High Castle Gets Season 3 Premiere Date and Season 4 Renewal

The Man in the High Castle, Amazon’s alternate history sci-fi Nazi show based on the Philip K. Dick novel, finally has a Season 3 premiere date – Oct. 5 – and maybe there won’t be as long a wait between seasons next time, because it’s already been picked up for Season 4, TVLine reports.

Season 2 premiered way back in December 2016 after a troubled production where creator Frank Spotnitz quit halfway through and the season was finished without a showrunner.

For Season 3, Bosch executive producer Eric Overmeyer took over.

Amazon doesn’t release viewer numbers, but has said that the Season 2 premiere of The Man in the High Castle had the best debut weekend of any of its scripted series.

The studio is in flux right now under new head Jennifer Salke after last year’s ouster of president Roy Price amidst a sexual harassment scandal that included him making inappropriate comments to Man in the High Castle EP Isa Dick Hackett, and it’s moving away from niche projects to expensive genre fare like The Expanse and Lord of the Rings.

This renewal shows The Man in the High Castle still fits in the new vision for Amazon.

‘The Man in the High Castle’ Renewed for Season 4 on Amazon

Season three of The Man in the High Castle will premiere Oct. 5 on Amazon, the company announced Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.

Oh yeah, the show will also be returning for a fourth season.

Given that High Castle is among Amazon Prime’s more popular series – at least according to Amazon, which like other streaming providers doesn’t release viewership data – the early pickup isn’t all that big a surprise.

Season two ended with a nuclear blast averted but a number of characters at a crossroads.

Amazon also released a teaser for the third season, hinting at what’s to come.

Treme and Bosch veteran Eric Overmyer joined as showrunner for season three after the show went without anyone at the helm in the second season.

Watch a teaser for the third season of The Man in the High Castle below.
