All good things must come to an end. I know here at LRM Online, Cam Clark is a huge fan of the Amazon Prime original series The Man in the High Castle — and I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who enjoyed the alternate reality they were able to portray over the course of its three seasons thus far. But it looks like that’ll be all she wrote once the episodes of the upcoming fourth season hits the streaming service.
THR is reporting that Amazon will be ending the show with the next batch of episodes, which is expecting to wrap its production next month. This announcement has come in advance of the fall release of the now final season, which is set to hit this coming fall. It also comes in tandem with the first teaser for the sci-fi show, which you can check out above.
“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,” executive producer Isa Dick Hackett said in a statement. “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!”
Sadly, it doesn’t sound like this is a result of a show ending on its own terms, but rather the new Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke essentially “cleaning house.”
Here is what she said in 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.”
Luckily, even if this decision is against the wishes of the filmmaker, hopefully knowing about this in advance will allow them to wrap things up nicely. Will you be sad to see The Man in the High Castle go? Let us know your thoughts down below!
