Man in the High CastleAmazon is bringing "The Man in the High Castle" back for a second season. The streaming service renewed the dystopian drama, based on Philip K. Dick's novel, set in an alternate history in which the United States lost World War II.

The series takes place 20 years after the conclusion of the war, with America's East Coast controlled by Nazis and the West Coast ruled by Japan. San Francisco resident Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) is caught up in the resistance movement when she comes into possession of a film that shows what the world would've been like had the U.S. won the war. Along the way, she meets Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), a Nazi agent posing as a resistance fighter, who reports on their dealings to his commander (Rufus Sewell).

The first season ended on an intriguing note with — SPOILER ALERT — Juliana's boss, the Japanese trade minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) meditating and waking up to America in the 1960s as we knew it.

The series received generally positive reviews, and the pilot was one of Amazon's most-watched. Season 2 is set to premiere sometime in 2016.
