With the brand new season of The Man in the High Castle right around the corner for viewers in the UK on Amazon Video, the show has finally revealed exactly who will be playing the show's titular character, and the choice may be a surprising one.

Prolific actor Stephen Root will be stepping into the role, described as "a mysterious figure tied to the Resistance movement who collects the enigmatic films that seem to depict alternate versions of reality."

Root will star alongside Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, Joel de la Fuente, Brennan Brown, Bella Heathcote, Callum Keith Rennie, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Rufus Sewell, with executive production from David Zucker and Isa Dick Hackett.

The second season will pick up right where the first left off, with Juliana Crain (Davalos) facing the consequences of her betrayal to the Resistance, having allowed suspected Nazi Joe Blake (Kleintank) to escape the Pacific States with a film that was originally being sent to the Man in the High Castle (Root).

Returning to the Reich as a hero, Joe is thrust into Berlin - the Nazi capital - and comes face-to-face with the father who abandoned him. Elsewhere, Frank Frink (Rupert Evans) is becoming increasingly radicalised, drawn further into the Resistance after seeing his own execution in the mysterious movies.

Tensions continue to rise between Germany and Japan, before Trade Minister Tagomi (Tagawa) begins to regret his success after smuggling nuclear technology from the Reich. Seeking a new path in the mysterious world he's now a part of, viewers could be set to see an incredible journey take place.

The Man in the High Castle returns to Amazon Prime Video on December 16.
