SHOGUN creator talks about the possibility of a second season without the “road map” of another book

Adaptation of the FX series by Shogun it was damn amazing! This show was amazing and since the series has come to an end, fans are wondering if we might see a second season.

If there was a second season, the creative team wouldn’t have the same roadmap they had with the first season, as it was based on James Clavelis the 1975 novel.

While co-creator Giustino Marchi think a second season is unlikely, they’re open to it if they can find a good and interesting story to tell.

During an interview with THR, Marks said, “I keep saying it’s like we want to let everyone be on the same page when it comes to the book. And hopefully now the TV audience and the book audience are on the same page with what the story is and where it resolves.

He continued, “I think if we had a story, if we could find a story, we’d be open to it. But I don’t think anyone ever wants to go out on skis without a roadmap and everything. And the question is also: the do people want more?”

Marks continued: “But it’s also about not even being at the top of the book, but how do you match the roadmap that Clavell lays out? And I don’t know if that’s possible.

He added: “I don’t know if Clavell could have done it either. That’s probably why he moved on to other books too, right? He knew what he had done. Yes, it’s tough.”

I mean, there’s no doubt that people want more because the series was a huge success and it was a high-quality, well-made series. The question is: is there a story the creative team is excited to tell?

It’s totally fine if we don’t see a second season. But I would still love for the entire creative team to come together to develop another series! I don’t care what it’s about, but this team needs to put their talent and energy into another big epic project.

Maybe it could be another of Clavell’s books! His “Asian Sagas” are all set in different periods and countries.

Shōgun is set in the early 17th century, Shōgun sees the English sailor John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis) shipwrecked on the coast of Japan, where his path crosses with the powerful Lord Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada) and the mysterious samurai Lady Mariko (Anna Sawai).
