Amazon’s alternative history series Man in the High Castle has been greenlit for a third season, Variety reports. The show is based on Philip K. Dick’s 1962 novel which imagines that World War II resulted in totalitarian rule of the United States by Germany and Japan.

As Variety points out, Man in the High Castle will have a new showrunner this season, Eric Overmyer (The Affair). Frank Spotnitz, who also developed the series, stepped down as showrunner in the middle of last season. He will stay on as an executive producer along with Ridley Scott and several others.

Amazon has claimed Man in the High Castle was its most-streamed original series for both of its two seasons. The third season does not yet have a release date.
