If you’ve watched this alt-history drama, chances are you’re already waiting for its newest season. The series is based on Philip K. Dick’s novel that goes by the same name. The first three seasons have already been aired and fans have been eagerly waiting for the fourth installment of the series. In case you haven’t watched any of the seasons of this series, beware of the spoilers’ head! Watch the latest season only on Amazon with Roku!
After leaving the viewers with a mind-blowing finale of season 3, The Man in the High Castle, is all set to air the first episode of its fourth season on 15th November. Viewers can expect a lot of heavy-duty drama and action happening this season. Most of the favorite characters will return and the plotline is expected to go as per general predictions unless the writers had something else in mind.
What Have the Teasers and Trailers Revealed So Far?
The teaser of the fourth season had already been out some time ago and looks every bit promising. The teaser gave a little glimpse of various elements of the last season including the events in the wake of Jahr Null celebration in the Reich. Some of the main characters (like Juliana) were also shown but in newer surroundings. The struggle against the Axis powers looks more vigorous than ever in the teaser. The teaser also has an intriguing scene where Juliana is seen dancing with John Smith where Smith’s demeanor looks visibly different as compared to his usual self.
Other than this teaser, a sneak peek into the show has also been released recently. The clip shows the events where the last episode of season 3 had left off. Juliana, who was last seen to be shot at by Reichsmarschall John Smith, successfully teleports herself to an alternate world where she’s found heavily injured on the road by the alternate versions of both John Smith and his son Thomas. The shock on Juliana’s face seems quite evident. The clip ends with John and Thomas helping Juliana get in the car.
The teaser and trailers so far have provided a good view of where the series is headed to. War-like scenes are suggesting the conflict between the resistance and the Axis powers will eventually take place. We might even see alternate versions of dead characters like Frank Frink and Joe Blake in action.
What a lot of fans are curious about is Thomas Smith’s plotline. We haven’t been informed much about the Reichsmarschall’s eldest child ever since he reported himself to the Reich. Although John Smith had hatched a plan to get him ‘abducted’ while on a school tour which could not materialize. It’s not yet sure that Thomas has already been euthanized. With John Smith being a Reichsmarschall now, he could pull some strings to get his son out to a safe place.
What to Expect From Season 4?
Season 4 has been highly anticipated by fans since the season 3 finale. While the main characters will most likely be seen continuing the struggles, the arc of the newer characters is not very clear yet. Juliana, as revealed in the sneak peek, will be seen continuing her foray into the alternate world that she managed to transport herself into.
John Smith, on the other hand, is expected to delve further into looking for clues to bringing people to and fro the alternate worlds. His struggles that were left unanswered in the last season might see a closure this time. While he’s eager to find a way to have his son back (one way or the other), Helen and his daughters are still away from him and did not seem to come back any sooner as seen in the last season.
The resistance forces are likely to get stronger and we might see more action between the Axis powers and the resistance. It would be interesting to see if different resistance forces come together to fight against the Nazis and the Kempeitai. Other characters like Ed and Childan could be seen assisting the resistance in their way.
Apart from all these speculations, there will be a big question like what would happen to the portal that the Nazi scientists had been working on and if the resistance will win against the Axis powers. Season 4 will hopefully put an end to all speculations and questions when it finally airs in November.
Who All Will You See in Season 4?
The recurring characters such as Juliana, John Smith, Helen, Tagomi, Kido, and others will be there for sure. You might even see characters that have been killed or are supposedly dead (well, their alternate versions actually). There will be some new additions as well. New actors joining the cast, that we know so far, include Frances Turner, Rich Ting, and Clé Bennett.
Whatever twists and turns the season 4 will bring, it is sure to entertain the fans thoroughly. With talented actors like Rufus Sewell in the show, you can expect a lot of interesting moments this season. Meanwhile, you can refresh your memory of the series.
