If we ever had a reason to kiki over some amazing news, FX just gave it to us: the network has ordered a second season of their historic drama series, Pose.
Co-created by Ryan Murphy, Pose is a dance show that explores life in New York City’s 1980s ball culture world. It’s the first show to feature the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles ever, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross. Award-winning writer and cultural critic Janet Mock has also served as a producer on the show.
“Ryan Murphy has once again revolutionized television with Pose, an incredibly engaging story of creativity, courage, compassion, love and family at a pivotal time in our culture,” John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions, said to Variety. “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. We are honored to partner with our producers Ryan, Brad Falchuk, Steven Canals, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh, and the incredible cast and crew to continue this groundbreaking journey that is ‘Pose.'”
The season finale of Pose will air on FX this Sunday.
