Season two of "The Man in the High Castle", which premiered December 16, 2016, registered the most viewers over its debut weekend of all scripted Amazon originals to date, according to the company - after the freshman season previously set the record a year earlier. Additionally, the series has found new leadership in Eric Overmyer (Bosch, The Affair), who'll take on the role of showrunner. However, the Amazon series also appears to have a brighter future with "Bosch" executive producer Eric Overmyer at the helm.
Spotnitz stepped down from the showrunner role in May past year citing the decision to move the show's production activity to the west coast of the US. (It also airs shows such as "Transparent" and "Mozart in the Jungle.") When a second season of the show premiered last month, the company said that the new episodes drew the highest amount of viewers ever for the debut weekend of a scripted Amazon show. However, the abrupt nature of the change, which happened while season two was still in production and caused them to halt while everything was sorted out, implies that it was a little more than that. He will stay on as an executive producer along with Ridley Scott and several others. We will be sure to let you know when Amazon announces a decision on those shows! Now that the renewal is assured, the mood seems hopeful that the Amazon original series will be able to explore more of what a 1960 society under Nazi and Japanese occupation looks like, perhaps not just in America and Germany, but elsewhere as well. Season two, which was just recently released, ratchets up the intensity and double-cross to culminate in a flawless and shocking season finale.
For those out there who enjoy Amazon's "The Man in the High Castle", rest assured that you're getting a whole lot more of the show now moving into the future.
