The rumors that were circulating over the summer are true: Amazon Prime Video did indeed renew their flagship sci-fi series to ensure that there will be a The Man in The High Castle season 4, according to news that came out of the press room at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. Now, the long wait for the show’s return is almost over, as the premiere is a mere month away.
The Man in The High Castle has been a slow burn series that strives to visualize the concept of Dick’s complex alternate history that poses the question, “What if the Nazis won World War II”, and season 3 reunited a cast that features Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Revenge), Rufus Sewell (Dark City), Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Brennan Brown (Chicago Med), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural).
More cast announcements for The Man in the High Castle season 4 are below, and we’ll bring you more news as Amazon unveils its plans for the series’s final outing. If you haven’t seen season 3 yet, you can check out our spoiler-free review here.

MacIntyre will play Russ Gilmore, a new friend of Juliana Crain.
Locke will play the above mentioned General Yamori, the new leader of the JPS. He is a hardliner who is determined to maintain Japan’s totalitarian occupation of America. His views will be in conflict with the leaders in Japan who are weighing the benefits of withdrawing, something Yamori would rather die than allow to happen.
Frances Turner (The Gifted) will also join the cast as a regular for The Man in the High Castle season 4. Clé Bennett (Homeland) and Rich Ting (NCIS: Los Angeles) will have recurring roles in the new season. Here are the character details According to Deadline:
Turner will play Bell Mallory. Bell has escaped from a Nazi concentration camp into the Japanese Pacific States, where she meets Elijah (Bennett), a militant Black nationalist. Together the couple become members of a cell in the BCR, an urban guerrilla movement dedicated to the liberation of African-Americans. Ting will play Captain Iijima, a driven, ambitious young detective in the Kempeitai and Kido’s close deputy.
The Man in the High Castle Season 4 Story
Given everything outlined above, it seems likely that The Man in the High Castle season 4 will pull out all the stops for its series finale. With Juliana unlocking the secrets to being a traveler, her key role in the many films that form the key mystery of the series will likely be revealed finally. Whether John Smith’s new knowledge of the parallel worlds will come into play in his own self interest, in the interest of the American Reich, or to the benefit of the greater good is another central question that will likely be explored.
Because of the new roles within the resistance and the trailer’s references to those “waiting to be activated,” it also seems likely that an uprising is likely in the world in which the show has been based from the start. But with the tagline, “The End of the Worlds Is Coming,” there might also be a reckoning from other realities… or the attempt to shut the connection between them down.
