“The Man in the High Castle,” loosely based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, ended with a sudden cliffhanger when Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) used Juliana’s (Alexa Davalos) charm and mysteriously warped to an alternate 1962 where the Allied forces and not the Axis Powers won in World War II, basically coming to this reality.
Very little about season 2 has been shared ever since the first season ended and a large reason for this is the sudden departure of season 1 showrunner Frank Spotnitz from the show. Spotnitz will remain as an executive producer and no replacement was sought as the other producers will step in collaboratively to guide season 2’s direction.
Despite this, the official schedule for this year’s San Diego Comic Con reveals that there will be a panel held on Wednesday, July 20 and will have Philip K. Dick’s daughter Isa Dick Hackett on board. Hackett also serves as an executive producer for the series.
Although unconfirmed, the stars of the show are also expected to appear for the panel. Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa are some of the most anticipated stars to appear given how events took place in the season 1 finale.
Fans speculate that Hackett and the rest of the panel will reveal a few spoilers for season 2, such as how the season will depict the events taking place in the show’s “prime” reality, where America lost to Germany and Japan, and the “alternate” world that Tagomi finds himself in, the world where the US won against the Axis Powers in World War II.
Although it is not yet confirmed, a teaser trailer for “The Man in the High Castle” season 2 is also likely going to be released, giving fans their first look at the show and a deeper understanding of where the story is going. An official premiere date is also likely to be announced given that the series had been on hiatus due to the departure of Spotnitz.
