The third season of Amazon’s hit ‘The Man in the High Castle’ doesn’t arrive until October 5, but a fourth has already been ordered and it appears that the producers are already lining things up for the future. The service has just announced three new cast members and their characters. Frances Turner joins as Bell Mallory. Clé Bennett plays a character known as Elijah and Rich Ting takes on the role of detective Captain Iijima.
Turner’s Bell Malory is an escapee of a Nazi concentration camp, who makes her way into the Japanese Pacific States, where she encounters Bennett’s Elijah, “a militant Black nationalist.”
“Together the couple become members of a cell in the BCR, an urban guerrilla movement dedicated to the liberation of African-Americans. Ting will play Captain Iijima, a driven, ambitious young detective in the Kempeitai and Kido’s close deputy.”
Turner has appeared on numerous shows including ‘Quantico’, ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘The Gifted’, ‘Time After Time’, ‘Powerless’, ‘Lethal Weapon’, ‘The Exes’ and more. Bennett is a recurring cast member on the Canadian series ‘Private Eyes’ starring Jason Priestley, and provided a voice on the series ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’. He has also appeared on ‘Homeland’, ‘The Tick’, ‘Heroes Reborn’ and ‘Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters’ and in last year’s horror movie ‘Jigsaw’.
Ting will also be seen next year in the Cinemax TV series ‘Warrior’ inspired by an original idea from Bruce Lee. He previously starred on the Korean series ‘Iris’. He has also appeared on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, ‘Waco’, ‘Supergirl‘ and ‘Rush Hour’.
These three newcomers join cast members Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, Joel De La Fuente, Brennan Brown, Bella Heathcote, Chelah Horsdal and Jason O’Mara with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Rufus Sewell.
‘The Man in the High Castle’ was created for television by Frank Spotnitz, based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, which is set in a parallel universe where the Nazis won World War II and conquered the United States, splitting it between Japan and the European Nazis– Germans and Italians. Eric Overmyer steps in as showrunner for season three.
New episodes of ‘The Man in the High Castle’ will be available on October 5, 2018.
