Season 2 of Amazon's The Man in the High Castle builds on the high-concept premise of the first season: what if the Axis powers had won World War II and taken over the United States? The show is based on a classic Philip K. Dick novel.

"I think the principal objective of season two was to really move aggressively into the world of the story, really instigate our characters in a manner given the urgency of their various situations and at the same time expand their purview a little bit," says executive producer David Zucker to Variety. "So what’s ostensibly been created is something of a butterfly effect against an ensemble of characters. That speaks to one of the principal themes of the story, which is how we individually, even up against enormous obstacles such as what totalitarianism does to one’s freedoms and such, how we as an individual can work to greatest effort to effect a better future."
