Shōgun – Official Trailer | Hiroyuki Sanada, Cosmo Jarvis, Anna Sawai | FX

FX has finally released its first official trailer for the series adaptation of “Shogun,” starring Hiroyuki Sanada and Cosmo Jarvis.

The series was created by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks. Based on James Clavell’s 1975 novel of the same name, the 10-episode limited series is set in Japan in the year 1600 and follows Lord Yoshii Toranaga (Sanada), who must fight for his life after his enemies on the Council of Regents unite against him.

The official logline reads, “When a mysterious European ship is found marooned in a nearby fishing village, its English pilot, John Blackthorne (Jarvis), comes bearing secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power and devastate the formidable influence of Blackthorne’s own enemies — the Jesuit priests and Portuguese merchants.

Toranaga’s and Blackthorne’s fates become inextricably tied to their translator, Toda Mariko (Anna Sawai), a mysterious Christian noblewoman and the last of a disgraced line. While serving her lord amidst this fraught political landscape, Mariko must reconcile her newfound companionship with Blackthorne, her commitment to the faith that saved her and her duty to her late father.”

Besides Sanada and Jarvis, “Shogun” also stars Anna Sawai, Tadanobu Asano, Hiroto Kanai, Takehiro Hira, Moeka Hoshi, Tokuma Nishioka, Shinnosuke Abe, Yuki Kura and Fumi Nikaido.
