Created by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks, Hulu's Shogun is one of the most buzzed-about new TV shows in 2024. Based on the 1975 historical novel by James Clavell, the acclaimed miniseries concerns John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis), an English navigator who becomes shipwrecked off the coast of Japan in 1600. Enamored by the ancient Japanese culture and customs, Blackthorne joins the resistance against Lord Toranaga (Hiroyuki Sanada), one of Japan's Five Regents who controls the Kanto region of Honshu.
