Amazon Prime Video Greenlights Season Three of Emmy Award-Winning and Top-Streamed Original Dramatic Series "The Man in the High Castle"

Eric Overmyer will serve as showrunner and executive producer

Season Two had the most viewers over its debut weekend of all scripted Amazon Original Series that debuted this year

SEATTLE - Jan. 3, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has greenlit a third season of the original dramatic series The Man in the High Castle. Additionally, Eric Overmyer (Treme, Bosch, The Affair) will serve as showrunner and executive producer for this new season. Seasons one and two of the Emmy Award-winning drama series are now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany and Austria via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at http://amazon.com/originals. Following in the footsteps of its first season, Season Two of The Man in the High Castle premiered with the most viewers over its debut weekend of all scripted Amazon Original Series.

The Man in the High Castle stars Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Rupert Evans (American Pastoral), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars), DJ Qualls (Z Nation), Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove), Brennan Brown (Focus), Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon), and Callum Keith Rennie (Longmire), with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Revenge) and Rufus Sewell (Victoria). The series was developed by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), with Ridley Scott (The Martian), David W. Zucker (The Good Wife), Richard Heus (Ugly Betty), Isa Dick Hackett (The Adjustment Bureau), and Daniel Percival (Banished) serving as executive producers for Season Three.

"As timely as ever, the exploration of characters at a dark point for humanity has provided incredible stories for two seasons," said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. "Eric and his team are doing an incredible job crafting stories about the inner lives of those who struggle to do good in a world that is not. We couldn't be more excited to bring season three to customers in 2017."

Season two has an average customer rating of 4.6 stars. Here is what customers have been saying:

· "Set in a dystopian future where the Allies lose the war, it is a brilliant piece with an interesting plot line and interesting characters to match."

· "... A terrific television drama in all of the ways I was expecting - it's an intelligently written and competently directed adaptation of what seems like a truly great science fiction classic."

· "The screenplay is mesmerizing, and the sets beyond perfection, giving you an idea of what America would have been."

· "The Man in the High Castle is phenomenal television in every sense."

· "This show has one of the best possible premises in the history of television."

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.

Eric Overmyer has writing and producing credits that include St. Elsewhere, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, Homicide: Life on the Street, Law & Order, The Wire, New Amsterdam and Treme, which he created with David Simon, and adapting Amazon Original Series Bosch for television. He has four Writers Guild nominations, three Emmy nominations, two Edgar nominations and a Humanitas nomination. With his colleagues, he has shared a Writers Guild award and an Edgar award for The Wire, and a Peabody award and a PEN teleplay award for Treme.

The first two seasons of The Man in the High Castle are now available for Prime members to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership.
