Amazon Prime’s The Man in the High Castle Season 3 will debut on the streaming service on October 5. The show is one of my favorites right now and I have been lucky enough to watch Season 3 already, review to follow later today.

The trailer doesn’t really serve to recap what has happened so far on the show and focusses on teasing some of the events coming in Season 3. Here is the official synopsis for Season 3 of The Man in the High Castle courtesy of Amazon Prime.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, The Man in the High Castle explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Season three of the Emmy award-winning The Man in the High Castle finds Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) grappling with her destiny after seeking safety in the Neutral Zone. Realizing that their fates are intertwined, she works with Trade Minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) to interpret the mystery of the last remaining films. Meanwhile, as tensions between the Reich and the Empire continue to rise, Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank) returns from Berlin and is sent on a diplomatic mission to San Francisco, where he and Juliana reunite and come to a turning point in their relationship. Also in the new season, Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) finds himself celebrated by Nazi high society, but political forces are closing in as North American Reischsmarschall Lincoln Rockwell and J. Edgar Hoover plot against him. Helen (Chelah Horsdal) takes drastic action to protect her family while they struggle with the aftermath of Thomas’ death, and Smith learns of a shocking and ambitious new Nazi program that has personal and global ramifications.

I won’t say anything much of what I thought about season 3 here (it was amazing), however, the above synopsis really doesn’t begin to cover the massive plot changes coming in Season 3. An interesting note here is that the trailer, features Lxandra’s reimagining of U2’s hit song “Pride (In the Name of Love)”– the first time U2 has allowed the song to be covered and used commercially.

If you have not yet managed to catch Season 1 and 2 of The Man in the High Castle, these are available to all subscribers of Amazon Prime now and Season 3 will premiere on October 5, which is exactly one week from now. I heartily encourage our readers who subscribe to catch up on the first two seasons of the show as soon as you can, because Season 3 kicks this into another level for me.

The Man in the High Castle stars Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars), DJ Qualls (Z Nation), Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove), Brennan Brown (Focus), Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon) Chelah Horsdal (You Me Her) and Jason O’Mara (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Revenge) and Rufus Sewell (Victoria). The series was developed by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), with Ridley Scott(The Martian), David W. Zucker (The Good Wife), Richard Heus (Ugly Betty), Isa Dick Hackett (Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams), and Daniel Percival (Banished) serving as executive producers for Season 3. Additionally, Eric Overmyer (Treme, Bosch, The Affair) serves as showrunner and executive producer for this new season.
