Published

on

Based on the 1975 novel of the same name by James Clavell, Shōgun is an upcoming American period drama television limited series. The executive producer of the show includes Andrew Macdonald, Allon Reich, Michael De Luca, Michaela Clavell, Tim Van Patten, Eugene Kelly, and Ronan Bennett.

Principal photography for the series was scheduled to commence in March 2019 in Japan and the United Kingdom but was delayed because the network felt that the production wasn’t in good enough shape and that they wanted to aim higher. Principal photography for the series began on September 22, 2021, in Vancouver, and lasted until July 2, 2022, a full two months over the expected timeframe.

So, when is the brand new show releasing? What is the plot? Who would come back to reprise their roles? Continue reading to know further details.

Shōgun Plot and Cast

The plot will be based on the bestselling book of the same name by James Clavell. The book highlights the impact and Relationships between the Japanese and the Europeans. It follows the story of two ambitious men in the world who collide alongside a mysterious yet powerful woman, Lady Mariko. The series explores the life of John Blackthorne, An English sailor whose ships wrecked in the Izu Peninsula on the South West Coast of Japan.

Despite his shipwrecking, he is the first Englishman to ever set foot on that coast which calls for something to be proud of. He encounters a different world altogether, where people vie for power to be the Shogun. He is then taken to the Toronaga Household, where he witnesses leadership and is soon absorbed. Soon enough, he meets Lady Mariko, a mysterious Samurai woman from a dishonored background.

The show casting came in early, and Variety recently confirmed that the show’s main characters, Toronaga and Blackthorne, would be played by particular and studded actors, Hiroyuki Sanada and Cosmo Jarvis. Sanada, who has acted in a couple of series, including Army of the Dead, Avengers, and Endgame, will be playing Toronaga.

His counterpart Jarvis has acted in Peaky Blinders and Raised by Wolves, and he will play Blackthorne. Anna Sawai (Ninja Assasin)  will be playing Lady Mariko, Tadanobu Asano as Kashigi, Tokuma Nishioka, Takehiro Hira, Ako, Shinnosuke Abe, Hiroto Kanai, and Toshi Toda.

Shōgun Release Date

FX is yet to give a precise date of when we should expect the Shogun series. We do not know whether the show’s filming has begun, but its photography concluded in July.

Since the series has already given out all the characters that are supposed to feature in the series, we could say that the show is actively developing. We should expect the ten-episode series anytime from now. A possible release date for the Shogun show is in 2024.

Shōgun Trailer

FX is yet to release a trailer for the Shogun series, but we expect that the series will be released in 2022, considering that the series photography concluded a while back. Once the series is released, you will be able to watch it on Disney as the channel is collaborating with both Disney and Hulu to bring you some fresh content.
