What to Watch for June 2024


FX’s Shōgun is an original adaptation of James Clavell’s bestselling novel, which is set in Japan at the end of the 16th century and is loosely inspired by true events and real people.

Like the book, this 10-episode limited series follows Lord Yoshii Toranaga — a warrior fighting for his life as his enemies unite against him. Meanwhile, a mysterious Englishman and his ship wash up on nearby shores, harboring secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power. Watch on Hulu.
