The fabulously groundbreaking Pose stepped off with its second season just last week, and as of Monday, it has already been renewed for season 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The FX series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals about the ball scene that began in the ’80s made history last year when it premiered with the largest cast of transgender performers in trans roles ever. The series began its second season with a series high of 1.2 million viewers.
The second season picks up a year after the first ended in 1990 when Madonna’s “Vogue,” her megahit about the movement begun by queer people of color, was climbing the charts. But 1990 was also a year when HIV and AIDS continued to devastate LGBTQ communities, and Pose's second season weaves ACT UP-style activism into its tale of the New York City ball scene and the “houses” that served as de facto family for so many trans people.
"Pose has elevated our culture and the TV landscape like few shows before it, and we are honored to partner with co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals on a third season,” FX chairman John Landgraf said, according to THR.
“Our thanks to the entire creative team, including Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh, Janet Mock, Our Lady J, Erica Kay, the amazing cast and crew and everyone at Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions for this incredibly entertaining, enlightening and groundbreaking series.”
The acclaimed series stars MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllon Burnside, Angel Bismark Curiel, and Sandra Bernhard.
