FX Shogun premiere on February 27 kicked off a worthy TV event by transporting us all back in time to feudal Japan. John Wick: Chapter 4 star Hiroyuki Sanada, a veteran martial artist who has made major contributions to samurai stories over the years, is back as the historical drama’s leading man. Set in the 17th century and based on John Clavell’s novel, this series has opened the doors to yet another ambitious rivalry and mysterious warriors in the midst.

What to expect from Shogun Episode 3

With the epic saga’s eye set on a time of war, the next installment will directly take us to the heart of preparations for the same. This, in turn, will introduce more political drama as significant individuals settle into their new roles and pick their alliances while betrayals emerge on the other side.

The preview of the third episode also establishes John as an indispensable advisor to Toranga. On the other hand, he will call other feudal lords to attention as he pursues partnership with them.
