Shogun releases a new episode every Wednesday.

Rachel Kondo opens up about the team that worked on FX’s Shogun.

Immerse yourself in an epic drama set in feudal Japan with FX’s Shōgun. An original adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel by the same name, the 10-episode limited series unravels in 17th-century Japan when a mysterious ship appears in a nearby village, leading to a civil war and unleashes a fight for survival for Lord Yoshii Toranaga as his enemies unite against him. Created for television by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks, the all-new series features an acclaimed Japanese cast that includes Hiroyuki Sanada, Anna Sawai, and Cosmo Jarvis in pivotal roles. Packed with political conspiracies, edge-of-the-seat action, and intricate historical details, FX’s Shōgun promises a cinematic masterpiece unlike any other.

Rachel Kondo, Co-creator, Executive Producer, and Writer, discusses the results of the entire team’s efforts that brought FX’s Shōgun onto the screen, “We are just three individuals standing before you but there have been thousands of people who have poured themselves, and their hearts and their resources, and their gifting into bringing this show to fruition”. She added, “By getting to show it to you all tonight it’s what makes the show feel like it’s coming to life”.

FX’s Shōgun also stars Tadanobu Asan, Hiroto Kanai, Takehiro Hira, Moeka Hoshi, Tokuma Nishioka, Shinnosuke, Yuki Kura, and Fumi Nikaido. Justin Marks serves as the Showrunner and Executive Producer alongside Michaela Clavell, Edward L. McDonnell, Michael De Luca, and Kondo. Hiroyuki Sanada also serves as a producer in the series produced by FX Productions.

News18 Showsha’s review of the series read, “The show delivers some of the raw, intense, and brutal scenes in the most matter-of-fact style. Another element that benefits the series is that it is produced by veteran Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada, which means there is not only a balance of the West ‘barbarian’ shown in the series but also a lot of authentic Japanese scenes, language and approaches which truly makes for an amazing watch. The cinematography and sound also elevate the series.”

FX’s Shōgun streams on Disney + Hotstar in India.
