Live, Work, Pose.
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, the dance/musical drama, Pose, will return for a second season.
The announcement was made with two episodes remaining in the show’s eight-episode freshman run. Set in the 1980s, the show “explores the New York ball scene as well as issues including HIV/AIDS and the class system during the rise of the luxury Trump-era world.”
The series stars Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross alongside Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, with newcomers Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllon Burnside and Angel Bismark Curiel.
Pose made history with the largest cast of transgender series regulars on primetime television, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ characters ever for a scripted series.
The latest episode “Love is the Message” was directed by Janet Mock and made history with Mock becoming the first trans black woman to direct a primetime drama. The show explores themes of family, love, betrayal and sexuality in a creative, honest and compassionate form of story telling. FX CEO John Landgraf states:
“As television critics have universally acknowledged, there is simply nothing like Pose on TV, so effortlessly excelling on every creative level and earning a place in television history for its infectiously inclusive spirit…”
Executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh, the second season is set to debut in 2019.
