Amazon today announced that Amazon Original Series The Man in the High Castle, recently renewed for a second season, is the most-streamed original show ever by Prime members globally. The show broke a previous record set by Amazon Original Series Bosch—which is launching its second season next year. Based on the award-winning book by Phillip K. Dick, developed by Frank Spotnitz and Executive Produced by Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott and David Zucker, along with Isa Dick Hackett, the show is available exclusively on Amazon Prime.
“We’re very proud of this outstanding series created by Frank Spotnitz, Scott Free and Isa Dick Hackett, which Amazon customers around the world have enthusiastically embraced, and we look forward to the second season,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. “We hoped that once again bringing together the work of Phillip K. Dick and the vision of Ridley Scott – who brought us the classic film Blade Runner – would help deliver on our promise of creating some of the best television in the world for Prime customers, and we believe that it has.”
“We’re delighted that The Man In The High Castle has struck such a chord with Prime members in the UK, where it quickly became our most popular show of all time,” said Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Video EU. “Our customers have made this one of our highest rated shows and this has been echoed by the critical acclaim it has received. We’re thrilled to be confirming a second season of the show for our Prime customers.”
The Man in The High Castle stars Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, Rufus Sewell, Rupert Evans, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Joel de la Fuente and DJ Qualls. The show is available in US, UK, Germany, and Austria – only on Amazon Prime.
