Evil triumphs only when good men do nothing.
Amazon Prime’s alternate WWII-outcome series The Man in the High Castle is back filming its second season after a sudden production shutdown. Frank Spotnitz is no longer showrunner but remains an executive producer of the series he developed from Philip K. Dick’s award-winning novel. The Man in the High Castle imagines an alternate America in the early 1960s after the Japanese and Germans win World War II and divide 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.
Production halted May 19 and resumed today, reportedly with reshoots per requested changes. And is back on location next week with a full crew.
