Amazon announced today that The Man in the High Castle has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes following last month's release of the show's sophomore season, and makes it only the second Amazon original drama to reach the third season mark.

A new showrunner is coming on-board for Season 3, filling a void left after Frank Spotnitz departed the series early in production of Season 2. Taking over going forward will be Eric Overmyer, who previously worked on Amazon's longest-running series, Bosch.

The Man in the High Castle is an original production of the streaming service and has become one of its more popular offerings. Loosely-based on the 1962 Philip K. Dick novel of the same name, the dystopian drama takes place in an alternate history where the United States has lost World War II and is now partitioned into three zones: a Japanese-occupied west coast, a Nazi-controlled east coast, and a neutral buffer zone that separates the two.

Look for Season 3 of The Man in the High Castle in 2018.
