FX’s record-breaking Shōgun TV show is getting two more seasons – and that presents two big problems

Shōgun, the hugely successful historical epic that’s set in Feudal Japan, has been renewed – and it won’t just be back for one more season.

In a press release, FX and Disney confirmed that the Hiroyuki Sanada-starring FX series, which is also available to stream on Hulu and Disney Plus, will return for “two additional seasons”. 

There’s no word on when season two will enter full production, or if both entries would be filmed back-to-back. However, FX revealed that Shōgun‘s co-creators/lead writers Justin Marks and Rachel Kondo were currently assembling a writers’ room ahead of penning its scripts this summer (that’s winter for southern hemisphere readers). Sanada is also officially set to return as Lord Yoshii Toranaga after reports earlier this week suggested Sanada had already signed on for Shōgun season two ahead of the show’s official renewal.

FX’s decision to order more seasons of Shōgun isn’t a great shock to anyone who’s kept tabs on its performance.
