“Shōgun” is a new series based on James Clavell’s popular novel, set in Japan in 1600 during a significant civil war. “Lord Yoshii Toranaga,” played by Hiroyuki Sanada, fights for survival as enemies in the Council of Regents unite against him. The discovery of a European ship and its English pilot, “John Blackthorne” (Cosmo Jarvis), brings secrets that could alter the power dynamics.
