The upcoming fourth season of ‘The Man in the High Castle’, Amazon’s parallel universe historical drama, will be its last. The series, about a world where the Nazis won World War II, is based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, and his daughter Isa Dick Hackett serves as an executive producer on the series. It was Hackett who announced the ending of the series in a statement:
“It has been a great privilege to work alongside our extraordinary High Castle team, in partnership with David Zucker and Scott Free, to bring my father’s classic novel to life, particularly during this tumultuous period in our real world. I believe fans will be thrilled and satisfied by the epic conclusion we have in store for them. I am very grateful for the ongoing support from Amazon as we produce this final season, and look forward to building on this extremely successful partnership. Stay tuned; there’s more to come!”
Amazon Studios’ new head Jennifer Salke stated:
“We are incredibly proud of all of the hard work from the massively talented executive producers, cast, crew and everyone who has worked on The Man in the High Castle over the years. With production ongoing on our fourth and final season, we can’t wait for fans to see how this final chapter in the story unfolds. The Man in the High Castle helped define Amazon Prime Video in the genre space, and we are grateful and excited that we’ll continue to be in business with Isa and Electric Shepherd Productions for future Philip K. Dick adaptations.”
The fourth season is now filming and is expected to wrap next month. Salke is new in her position and is said to be “cleaning house,” Last year, she axed ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’, a ‘Black Mirror’-esque anthology, after just one season. But Hackett recently signed a first-look deal with Amazon Prime to develop additional programming based on Dick’s writing.
