Fate is fluid; destiny is in the hands of men.

Based on Philip K. Dick's Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history novel, one-hour drama series The Man in the High Castle explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Some 17 years after that loss, the United States and much of the world has now been split between Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the dominating global powers. As tension mounts between the two hegemonic states, a resistance starts to grow as the United States citizens rise against the oppressive regimes.

While Germany controls much of the East Coast and Japan controls the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains have become a “neutral zone” — and ground zero for a rebellion, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle." As people struggle with freedom, fear, equality, diversity and ideology, others accept their lives, as compromised and unfulfilling as it may be. After some enigmatic films surface with a history different than their own, some citizens begin to question their own history, reality and the government’s information. Among them are heroes, leaders, spies, pacifists, tyrants, rebels, enablers and sympathizers.

The series debuted in Autumn 2015 on Amazon Prime Instant Video and quickly became Amazon's most streamed original series ever. Season 2 was greenlit in December 2015 and premiered December 16th, 2016.
