Season one of Man in the High Castle threw us into a gorgeously realised alternate reality where the Axis won World War II and the United States was divided into the east coast run by Nazis, the west coast run by Imperial Japan and a neutral zone between them. Since then, the real world landscape has exploded with people wondering about what other realities look like. With season two arriving on Amazon next week, we asked the cast and producers about rising popularity of alternate realities.
