The Man in the High Castle is officially stepping down. Amazon revealed the dystopian drama’s upcoming fourth season, set to launch this fall, will be its last. At least, it will be it’s last on Amazon. “While we’re bringing this chapter to a conclusion, if one thinks beyond the final frames of this series, it is very provocative to think about what stories may come thereafter,” exec producer David Zucker told Deadline. “Whether or not we all get to tell them or they get told in another incarnation in film and television, that’s for us to all see.”

AT&T unveiled its inaugural Dream In Black 28 Future Makers list, an element of the company’s new Dream in Black initiative that celebrates people who are making history now while shaping the future. Among creators the company is elevating are Reginae Carter, Terrence J. Van Jones, Queen Latifah, Vic Mensa, Keke Palmer and Zendaya. Future Makers are being announced each week this month, with the final, 28th honoree to be determined by a vote based on submissions across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #DreamInBlack. As part of the campaign, AT&T launched a custom emoji keyboard to enhance the text and social media experience. “Being from a place like the Southside of Chicago, I’ve seen a lot of people lose their lives for so little,” says music artist and activist Mensa. “When I hear the phrase Dream In Black, I think of centuries of black experience, having the courage to dream beyond limitations that society may place on you and across cultures that darker skin people face more limitations.” While AT&T chose Black History Month to launch Dream In Black, the initiative will continue as an ongoing campaign.
