SHOGUN may be getting a second season as actor Hiroyuki Sanada signs deal to return

It seems Shogun it might actually have a second season. Star and producer of the series Hiroyuki Sanada has signed a deal with FX to reprise his role as Lord Yoshii Toranaga in the next chapter of the historical epic.

The series was only supposed to be a limited series, but after becoming a huge hit, FX obviously wanted to continue the series in some capacity.

According to the report, “in case of season 2 renewal, Cosmo Jarvis he would also likely return to reprise his role as Pilot-Major John Blackthorne. Of course, there are many other pieces that need to be put in place before the official go-ahead.”

The first season was based on James Clavelis the 1975 novel, but once that’s done, the creative team won’t have a roadmap to follow.

Co-creator Giustino Marchi I previously said that a second season is unlikely, but the creative team is open to it if they can find a great and interesting story to tell.

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 about 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.”

Well, it looks like they’re going to try. The creative team will attempt to continue the story and it will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Written by Marks e Rachel Kondo, Shogun is set in the 17th century and takes place across multiple continents. The story follows a shipwrecked English sailor who becomes embroiled in the blood-spattered chessboard of Japanese feudal politics.

Shogun is FX’s most expensive series to date.
