Amazon Rolls Out First Teaser For Season 2 Of The Man In The High Castle

24 July 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the credits rolled on the series finale of The Man in the High Castle, Amazon’s original show that plunged America into a dark and twisted alternate history, fans were left with a truckload of unanswered questions.

Making matters worse, production on season 2 hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing, what with Frank Spotnitz’s decision to step down as showrunner mid-way through filming. In his steed, executive producers Isa Dick Hackett, David Zucker and Dan Percival helped steer development back on course, and here we arrive at the very first teaser for The Man in the High Castle‘s sophomore outing.

Hailing from Amazon’s Sdcc panel – one which featured series regulars Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Rupert Evans – many of those unanswered questions are shoved into the limelight, not to mention footage of Hitler unleashing a nuclear bomb on a hapless population.

How They Filmed ‘The Man in the High Castle’ With a ‘Retro-Futurist’ Vibe

22 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At Thursday’s Comic-Con panel, Isa Dick Hackett (exec producer and Philip K. Dick’s daughter) promised that we will meet “The Man in the High Castle” in Season 2. Meanwhile, cinematographer James Hawkinson, taking a break from prepping in Vancouver, teased by phone that we can expect more alternate worlds opening up.

Philip K. Dick didn’t believe in reality and it offers so many possibilities for parallel worlds,” offered Hawkinson (“Hannibal”).

This was alluded to at the end of Season 1 with the introduction of mysterious films and physical travel to an alternate timeline by Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tarawa).

It’s all part of the “retro-futurism” of the Amazon series that received craft noms not only for Hawkinson’s work on the pilot but also for production design, VFX and main title design.

Chris Longo Jul 22, 2016

At San Diego Comic-Con, we got the first look at Amazon's The Man in the High Castle season 2.

This time last year, the anticipation was building for release of The Man in the High Castle’s first season after the pilot set viewing records. Fans has to await for months between the pilot and the release of the full 10-episode run on Amazon Prime Video, and the cast was mum on spoiling an key details on the adaptation of legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick’s alternate history of the aftermath of World War II.

Absent season one showrunner Frank Spotnitz, who left the series in May, the cast came to San Diego Comic-Con with a little more to share, and a first look at Man in the High Castle season 2.

No release was announced, but all signs point to a late 2016 release. »

The Man in the High Castle‘s behind-the-scenes intrigue — which rival its on-screen ones — didn’t even get a passing mention during the Amazon series’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con Thursday.

In May, showrunner Frank Spotnitz abruptly exited the drama amid a difference of opinion with Amazon regarding his involvement in Season 2. The Vancouver-shot drama quickly went into hiatus, with other members of the production team scrambling to fill the Ep’s duties.

Emmys 2016: The 5 Most Attention-Grabbing Craft Contenders

15 July 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s good reason newcomers “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” “Mr. Robot” and “The Man in the High Castle” distinguished themselves with Emmy craft noms: they brought authenticity to stories that tap into the racial divisiveness, violence and alienation that are weighing heavily on our minds this Presidential election season. And riding the surge of female empowerment, impeccably produced “Outlander” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” also landed craft recognition.

FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” grabbed 22 noms (including cinematography, costumes, makeup and editing), second only to Emmy leader “Game of Thrones” with 23. What they achieved with recreating “the trial of the century” in the ’90s was bringing it eerily full-circle today.

Verisimilitude, of course, was crucial. For cinematographer Nelson Cragg, the Bundy Drive crime scene where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered provided one challenge. Since the Brentwood condo no longer exits, they had to »
