Amazon has announced the launch dates of two high-anticipated series: season two of 'Transparent' and the full series of 'The Man in the High Castle'.

'Transparent' starts again on December 4th, while 'The Man in the High Castle' gets underway November 20th.


Both are Amazon original series. 'Transparent' stars Jeffrey Tambor as Maura Pfefferman, a retired college professor who comes out as transgender. The comedy-drama was the first streaming-only show to win a Golden Globe.

The pilot of 'The Man in the High Castle' debuted as part of Amazon's most recent Pilots Season, in which viewers vote for which shows they want turned into full series.

It's based on a story by Philip K Dick, and posits what would happen if the Allied forces lost World War II. It's set in a post-war America occupied by German and Japanese forces.

Amazon has two other shows in its autumn line-up. 'Hand of God' stars Ron Pearlman as a lawman who turns vigilante and starts September 4th.

'Red Oaks', meanwhile, is a comedy focussing on suburban tennis clubs in the 1980s. It starts on October 9th.

The second series of 'Mozart in the Jungle' will also arrive on January 6th 2016 and continues to look behind-the-scenes at the classical music scene, with hedonism and parties galore.

Amazon has pumped a lot of money into original shows. It recently signed Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond to make a new car show, which will start in Autumn 2016.
