We're just a month away from new episodes of alt-history adaptation The Man In The High Castle. To offer an extra taste of the show's second season, a new trailer is online.

Taken – loosely – from Philip K. Dick's book, High Castle posits a world where the Axis powers won World War II. And now, 20 years after the end of the conflict, America is split between the Greater Nazi Reich and the Japanese Pacific States, with the two superpowers uneasily sharing the country.

But there are still those who believe in a free America, including Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) and Frank Frink (Rupert Evans), and they find themselves wrapped up in an effort to destablise their rulers. On the governmental side, there are the likes of Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell), an SS officer charged with hunting down the resistance. Yet even he's starting to question his values when he discovers that his son is sick.

The new season promises to explore more about the titular "man", a mysterious figure who is distributing films showing a very different outcome to the war... Where is his seemingly impossible intel coming from, and can Juliana and the resistance trust him?

Coming at a time when many people might wish they were living in an alternate reality, The Man In The High Castle returns to Amazon for a second run of 10 episodes on 16 December.
