‘Shōgun’: FX Releases Extended Trailer For Series Adaptation Of James Clavell Novel – Update

UPDATED: FX has unveiled a new extended trailer for Shōgun, its original series adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel, ahead of a 30-second spot the network will air during Super Bowl LVIII. The 10-episode series premieres Tuesday, February 27 on Hulu in the U.S., on Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories. The premiere will include the first two episodes, followed by a new episode each week. You can watch the new trailer and previously released teaser trailer below.

PREVIOUS, Nov. 2, 2023: FX has finally released its first trailer for Shōgun, its original adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel that was created for television by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks.

The limited series will drop on Hulu in the U.S., as well as Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories in February of 2024. FX will also telecast new episodes once each week.

FX chief John Landgraf originally announced at TCA that it would premiere this year after filming wrapped during the summer of 2022.

The 10-episode limited series is set in Japan in the year 1600, at the dawn of a century-defining civil war. Producer Hiroyuki Sanada stars as “Lord Yoshii Toranaga” who is fighting for his life as his enemies on the Council of Regents unite against him. When a mysterious European ship is found marooned in a nearby fishing village, its English pilot, “John Blackthorne” (Cosmo Jarvis), comes bearing secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power and devastate the formidable influence of Blackthorne’s own enemies – the Jesuit priests and Portuguese merchants. Toranaga’s and Blackthorne’s fates become inextricably tied to their translator, “Toda Mariko” (Anna Sawai), a mysterious Christian noblewoman and the last of a disgraced line. While serving her lord amidst this fraught political landscape, Mariko must reconcile her newfound companionship with Blackthorne, her commitment to the faith that saved her and her duty to her late father.

The 10-episode limited series features a Japanese cast, including Tadanobu Asano as “Kashigi Yabushige,” a notorious backstabber and close ally of Toranaga; Hiroto Kanai as “Kashigi Omi,” the young leader of the fishing village where Blackthorne’s ship was found; Takehiro Hira as “Ishido Kazunari,” a powerful bureaucrat who is Toranaga’s chief rival; Moeka Hoshi as “Usami Fuji,” a widow who must find new purpose amidst her lord’s fight; Tokuma Nishioka as “Toda Hiromatsu,” Toranaga’s trusted general and closest friend; Shinnosuke Abe as “Toda Hirokatsu” (“Buntaro”), Mariko’s jealous husband; Yuki Kura as “Yoshii Nagakado,” the brash son of Toranaga with a strong desire to prove himself; and Fumi Nikaido as “Ochiba no Kata,” the revered mother of the heir who will stop at nothing to put an end to Toranaga and his threat to her son’s power.

Marks served as showrunner and executive producer. Also serving as executive producers are Michaela Clavell, Edward L. McDonnell, Michael De Luca and Kondo. Hiroyuki Sanada serves as a Producer.

The series is produced by FX Productions.
