Cool. Yeah, just because "it's the way it ended in the book" doesn't mean it has to end same in live action. I've talked to several people and they all hated the ended. They were like that's it? Makes sense that I'm sure they realized that, too.

Really? Wow, I thought it ended pretty perfectly, though I can understand some people being bothered by the resolution to the power struggle happening in a flash-forward.

The Leftovers is a series that got better after they left the source material behind after the first season.
That said, if they were going to do more than one season, God I wish they would have stretched out the source material here into two seasons. I just donít think it can be the same show without Anna Sawaiís Mariko and Tadanobu Asanoís Yabushige.

I thought it ended perfectly too. Only thing they cut out was Ishido's fate.

For what it's worth, it took 5 years to create Shogun... 5 years!! In my opinion, that's why the show was so beautiful and thoughtful. I can't imagine they'd let the producers take more than 2 years at this point.

Season 2 AND 3 in the works:
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv...lu-1235901617/
It’s official: FX and Hulu are prepping not one but two more seasons of breakout drama Shōgun.

The Disney-owned network said Thursday that it is teaming with the estate of author James Clavell to extend Shōgun for two additional seasons. The company noted that both seasons are in development, meaning that a two-season renewal depends on how the creative comes in.

A writers room is being assembled and will open in the summer to explore a continuation of Shōgun beyond Clavell’s original novel. Shōgun’s creatives, including co-creators, exec producers and writers Justin Marks and Rachel Kondo, exec producer Michaela Clavell as well as star and producer Hiroyuki Sanada are all involved with the development.

Probably going to be at least 2 years before we get a potential season 2. Especially since it had to be created from scratch.

Yeah I know. But, a period show like this will be even more challenging to create from scratch.

He and his writing partner have had an outline for future stories since December (despite explicitly saying itís a limited series multiple times in interviews up
until now). Going to Japan today, reconvening with the writers in July.

The 1980 miniseries was just added to Paramount +. I checked and yes it’s there.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to release "Shogun" on Blu-ray? I'd love to own the series. I watched it on FX On Demand, but it had commercials and the series has already expired.
