HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2016/12/16– “I think we all have very distinct narratives within this show,” says The Man in the High Castle  star Rupert Evans. “I think we’re in very distinct worlds. This is obviously the West Coast, the East Coast, and new worlds in season 2 open up for these characters here. So the show, as with the book, expands. And so there’s a lot more for us to do. I hope that our characters can show the audience these differing world, and the changing aspects of our characters. For my character, for example, Frank Frink, we see him moving on and becoming radicalized in a way. It’s a very different…a huge departure, really, from season 1.”

“One of the things that we will actually get into, which we didn’t last season, is meeting the man in the High Castle,” says Man in the High Castle executive producer Isa Dick Hackett. “That’s a big piece of a character that we didn’t get to last season. But the progression, the narrative progression, is different in the show than it is in the book. So there was a little bit of jumping around. And so there is still quite a bit to do.”


“This is the most complicated show I’ve ever been associated with,” says Man in the High Castle executive producer David W. Zucker. “Not only looking at the density of source material, the challenge of the narratives that we’re telling, but also in just the execution of this. You know, we had the writers from London, shooting production in Vancouver, we’re posting in L.A. It is such a customized experience that, you know, that, frankly, even when we undertook this so many years ago, that it is almost more than any other series I’ve experienced, very much a sum of the parts.”

In the premiere of season two of The Man in the High Castle, Alexa Davalos is Juliana Crain. Juliana is faced with the consequences of betraying the Resistance by letting a Nazi escape with valuable films bound for the Man in the High Castle.

Luke Kleintank is Joe Blake, a suspected Nazi that Juliana let escape. Following his return to Berlin, he is deemed a hero to the Reich and is re-introduced to his father who abandoned him.

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is Japan’s Trade Minister Tagomi, who begins to regret smuggling nuclear technology from the Reich. Rufus Sewell is Obergruppenführer John Smith, a leader under much pressure to complete a mission from the Führer, although his son’s health is deteriorating. And Chief Inspector Kido (Joel de la Fuente) begins to take  interest in the Man in the High Castle, the films, and how Juliana is connected to it all.

The Man in the High Castle is loosely based on the novel by Philip K. Dick. Last season ended with a cliffhanger. The show was nominated for four Emmy nominations.
