SHOGUN Seasons 2 and 3 in development; Creators Tease “We Know How This Will End”

The hit FX series Shogun is moving forward with two more seasons and is already in development with the original creative team returning to work on it.

During a recent interview with Variety, the showrunner of the series, Giustino Marchi AND Rachel Kondothey reveal that they have the plots for those seasons planned until the very end.

Marks admits it will be a challenge moving forward without any book to guide them, but they are willing and ready to take on the challenge. The first season of the series was based on the epic novel by author James Clavell.

Marks says, “I’d be lying if I said we had the answers right now. We talked to one of our historical advisors who we love, and we just talked about, ‘Tell us a little more about William Adams here and Tokugawa Ieyasu.'” there, and tell us about some new characters and some new things that are going on. And OK, interesting.'”

As of now, the creative team is looking at all the real story to find the roadmap for season 2 and season 3.

Marks added: “And yes, it’s just when you have history on your side, what you don’t have on your side is this wonderful book moving forward. There are no roads where we’re going.”

They know where the story is going. to conclude, however: “I want to make this point especially clear… that we know how all this will end in the final moment.

Marks adds: “And once we saw that moment, we said, ‘Oh, now we have to get to that. Now we have to do this’… And we know how you get to that point… it was like, ‘Oh, wow. Yes, no, this is the natural end of this.’

“We think we have something exciting and surprising. We’ll go into the room to build it and if we come out the other side and it’s not good, the guarantee from FX and everyone is that we won’t make it.

It was previously revealed that the 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.

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.
