Rupert Evans and guests attend the European Premiere for Amazon Studios’s The Man in the High Castle Season 2

15 December 2016

Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, season two of the one-hour drama series The Man in the High Castle continues to explore what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. 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 resistance, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle.” While some citizens struggle against the fear, oppression and inequality, others accept their lives, as compromised and unfulfilling as they might be. But after a series of enigmatic films surface depicting a world vastly different from their own, some begin to question the very nature of their reality...

Season two resumes with Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) facing the consequences of her decision to betray the Resistance and allow Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), a suspected Nazi agent, to escape the Pacific States with a film originally bound for the Man in the High Castle. Joe himself returns a hero to the Reich and finds himself thrust into the Nazi capital of Berlin, face to face with the father who abandoned him. Meanwhile, Frank Frink (Rupert Evans) becomes increasingly radicalised and drawn further into the resistance after seeing images of his own execution in the mysterious films. With political tensions mounting between Germany and Japan, Trade Minister Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) begins to regret his success in smuggling nuclear technology from the Reich and seeks solace in the strange new world he discovered at the end of season one.

Meanwhile, Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) struggles to reconcile the values of the Reich with the deteriorating health of his son — all while tasked with a mission from the Fuhrer for which failure is not an option. And Chief Inspector Kido (Joel De La Fuente) begins to take greater interest in the Man in the High Castle, the films, and how Juliana Crain is connected to it all...




Rupert Evans, who plays Frank Frink in The Man in the High Castle, attended the European Premiere for season 2, which will be available on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 16 December.

Other guests attending the event included Kimberley Garner (Made in Chelsea), Craig Roberts (Red Oaks), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Tom Parker (The Wanted) and Tom Ransley (Olympic Gold medal winning rower).




In the upcoming season, the weight of war weighs heavy with the delicate peace treaty between Germany and Japan hanging in the balance, as Japan puts plans in place to construct an atomic bomb. With Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), Frank Frink (Rupert Evans), Juliana Crain and John Smith (Rufus Sewell) each setting out on individual missions to prevent the mass destruction, a butterfly effect is triggered whereby just one small action has the potential for wide-scale impact. But will they be able to succeed? And just who is The Man in The High Castle?

New to the series is Nicole Becker (played by Bella Heathcote) who is joined by returning characters including Tagomi (Hiroyuki Tagawa), Inspector Kido (Joel De La Fuente) and Ed McCarthy (DJ Qualls).

The Man in the High Castle is based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history book and questions what would happen if the Allied Powers had lost World War II.
