Plot Details & Spoilers

Executive producer Isa Hackett told Digital Trends that the upcoming season will unveil the identity of the elusive and mysterious "man in the high castle." The Christian Post reported in July that American actor Tate Donovan joined the alt-history drama series to play the titular character.

The series is based on the novel of acclaimed writer Philip K. Dick. Hackett revealed that the Amazon show will not follow the book verbatim. She said that they skipped some plots during the first season and incorporated them to the second installment.

The producer also confirmed that the storyline of the sophomore season will include Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) dealing with the decimation of the resistance. It will also see Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank) moving to Berlin and Frank Frink (Rupert Evans) turning more radicalized after watching the mysterious movies in first season.

The upcoming sophomore season of "High Castle" will premiere on Prime Video on Dec. 16 this year. It will feature 10 episodes.
