Updated with revised start date for filming:

Critically-acclaimed alternate WWII outcome series The Man in the High Castle starts filming its second season in metro Vancouver next week. Amazon Prime’s most streamed original show debuted to Amazon customers in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria on November 20th last year, but not in Canada where the series is made.

Like Netflix, Amazon is a global Internet TV network, with big money to spend on high production values — The Man in the High Castle’s first season was rumoured to cost over $50 million, or $5 million an episode. The drama is currently building a set inside CBC Vancouver. And may take production to Argentina and Morocco this season.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning novel, The Man in the High Castle imagines an alternate reality where the Japanese and Germans won World War II and divided the United States into three regions — the west coast as the Japanese Pacific States, the Rockies as a neutral zone and the east coast as the Greater Nazi Reich. Produced by Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), the series stars Alexa Davalos as Juliana Crain, Rupert Evans as Frank Frink, Luke Kleintank as double agent Joe Blake and Rufus Sewell as SS Obergruppenführer John Smith. Sewell was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for his performance.
