It looks like one of Amazon Prime Video’s staple series is coming to a close: The Man in the High Castle’s fourth season will be its last.
The Philip K. Dick adaptation quickly became Amazon’s most-watched original series on the platform, but the mega-corp has decided to drop its alt-history epic, as its popularity has since waned.
“It has been a great privilege to work alongside our extraordinary High Castle team, in partnership with David Zucker and Scott Free, to bring my father’s classic novel to life, particularly during this tumultuous period in our real world,” executive producer Isa Dick Hackett told Variety. “I believe fans will be thrilled and satisfied by the epic conclusion we have in store for them.” Hackett recently signed another deal with Amazon for another Prime original series.
The show boasted a massive production team: Frank Spotnitz ran the show for Amazon Studios, Scott Free Productions, Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and Big Light Productions. Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Joel De La Fuente, Brennan Brown and DJ Qualls led the equally massive cast.
“We are incredibly proud of all of the hard work from the massively talented executive producers, cast, crew, and everyone who has worked on The Man in the High Castle over the years,” Amazon Studios’ Jennifer Salke told Variety. “With production ongoing on our fourth and final season, we can’t wait for fans to see how this final chapter in the story unfolds. The Man in the High Castle helped define Amazon Prime Video in the genre space, and we are grateful and excited that we’ll continue to be in business with Isa and Electric Shepherd Productions for future Philip K. Dick adaptations.”
The Man in the High Castle isn’t Amazon’s only forthcoming cancellation. The widely acclaimed but oft-controversial series Transparent will cease as well, wrapping with a musical series finale later this year.
