Streaming giant Amazon has renewed its Philip K. Dick adaptation “The Man in the High Castle” for a third season following the second season’s premiere on the service three weeks ago.
Additionally, they have brought in a showrunner to oversee the scripted drama with “Bosch,” “The Affair” and “The Wire” producer Eric Overmyer taking over the reins.
Original showrunner Frank Spotnitz exited the series midway through production on the second season over budget and location issues with the remaining episodes completed without an executive producer.
The second season of ‘Castle’ premiered with the most viewers of all of its original series over the show’s debut weekend and had surpassed “Bosch” as the service’s most-watched original series during its freshman run. “Bosch” still has the edge in terms of longevity as it not only has a third season due in 2017 but has already been renewed for a fourth.
Amazon has yet to make decisions on the fate of several of its other series including “Crisis in Six Scenes,” “Goliath,” “Mozart in the Jungle,” “Red Oaks” and “Fleabag”.
