Shōgun sets viewing record on Disney+/Hulu

March 7, 2024

FX’s 10-episode limited series Shōgun – an epic saga of war, passion, and power set in feudal Japan, based on James Clavell’s bestselling novel – garnered 9 million views globally for the premiere episode across Hulu and Disney+, based on six days of streaming, making it the #1 scripted General Entertainment series premiere globally.

In the US, Shōgun is the #1 FX premiere on Hulu, just ahead of The Bear Season 2, aided by viewership from Hulu on Disney+. Internationally, Shōgun is No. 1 across all General Entertainment series releases, ahead of The Kardashians Season 1. 

The first three episodes of Shōgun are now streaming, and new episodes will debut every Tuesday through to April 23rd.

New and returning Disney+ customers in the UK and Ireland can subscribe to Disney+ Standard with Ads for £1.99/month for three months (until March 14th).
