Last year, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s Pose TV show was renewed for a second season on FX, a few weeks before the first season ended. It ranked in about the middle of the pack ratings-wise so, will the network’s faith be rewarded? Will the ratings improve or fall in season two? Will Pose be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An FX musical dance drama, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors in a scripted drama. The series stars Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross, Billy Porter, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard, and Charlayne Woodard. It revolves around several segments of society in New York City — ball subculture, Trump-era excess, and the downtown social and literary scenes. The second season kicks off in 1990. Because the mainstream is becoming aware of the ball scene, House Evangelista decides to assess its goals. As the AIDS crisis rips through the community, activists step up their efforts.
