Fans of The Man in the High Castle, rejoice, as the series gears up for season 3. Not only has the show been renewed for another season, but has also found a new showrunner.
This is definitely good news for followers of the dystopian thriller. It can be recalled that Frank Spotnitz, the series’ previous showrunner, left during the production of season 2.
The series operated like a “Republic0” for a while. There was reportedly no one calling the shots. Despite this, executive producer David Zucker was confident his crew could weather the storm.
“We have a system that is working as good as we can make it,” he said.
Bosch executive producer Eric Overmyer will direct the overall traffic for The Man in the High Castle Season 3. Overmyer is the co-creator of HBO’s Peabody Award-winning Treme, and was EP of Showtime’s The Affair.
New Addition Promises New Excitement
Amazon Studios’s head of comedy and drama Joe Lewis expressed high hopes for the series with the addition of Overmyer. He formally announced The Man in the High Castle Season 3, according to TV Line.
“As timely as ever, the exploration of characters at a dark point for humanity has provided incredible stories for two seasons,” Lewis said. “Eric and his team are doing an incredible job crafting stories about the inner lives of those who struggle to do good in a world that is not,” he added. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring season 3 to customers in 2017.”
