‘Man In The High Castle’ Gets Series Commitment From Amazon

Earlier in the week Amazon revealed that they are moving forward with a series of 'Man In The High Castle', which will pick things up from where their pilot episode left off.

It would seem that the voice of science fiction fandom has spoken.

Back in January Amazon launched their first pilot season of 2015 and one of the treats on offer was a television adaptation of the Philip K. Dick story ‘Man In The High Castle’, which is a story of a world in which Hitler and the Nazi’s won the second world war and occupied the east coast United States while their Japanese Allies took over the West Coast and Alaska.

Earlier in the week Amazon revealed that they are moving forward with a series of ‘Man In The High Castle’, which will pick things up from where their pilot episode left off.

Part of the official press release from Amazon is below:

“it has greenlit five new Amazon Original Series, including The Man in the High Castle, which is based on the Philip K. Dick alternative history novel; an hour-long dark comedy Mad Dogs; docu-series The New Yorker Presents; along with kids shows Just Add Magic, and The Stinky & Dirty Show.” Not sure what that means for when it’s coming — I’m sure Amazon has a different development program than the networks — but either way we’re happy. For those of you unaware, The Man In the High Castle takes place in an alternate universe (in the past) in which Germany and Japan won World War I, and now occupy the Western Hemisphere.


As one of the many fans that liked the pilot. I am doing my happy dance right now because I love period dramas in which we get to see alternatives to established history.
