The_Man_in_the_High_Castle_AmazonComing as no huge surprise, Amazon announced today that their alternate-history series The Man in the High Castle will be returning for a second season.  The streaming service does not release their viewing numbers, but it has been no secret that this is a well-watched show.  The pilot, which was released earlier in the year, is the most-watched ever on Amazon, and the series itself (which bowed in late November) has been receiving accolades from critics and sci fi fans alike.  Based on the Philip K. Dick book of the same name, the series follows an alternate history in which the Axis powers won World War II and Japan and Germany have a joint occupation of the United States.  X-Files veteran Frank Spotnitz developed the series and executive produces and it comes from Ridley Scott’s production company.  I have not seen official confirmation yet, but I assume the second season will be ten episodes like the first and will debut on the streaming service in late 2016.
