FX drama Pose, the groundbreaking dance musical series (it has the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles and the largest lgbtq cast ever for a scripted series), has been given a second season commission.

CEO of FX John Landgraf announced the news saying excutive producer “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. 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.”

Pose returns Sunday with the seventh and penultimate episode of its first season: “Pink Slip” (July 15, 9 PM ET/PT on FX) and in it Blanca makes a startling revelation about Lil Papi that changes the House of Evangelista forever. Meanwhile, Elektra rethinks her means of survival when the House of Abundance is evicted from their apartment. The episode is written by Steven Canals, Our Lady J; and directed by Tina Mabry.

Murphy himself tweeted the news saying…

 

Set in the 1980s, Pose is a dance musical that explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene.

Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series. The transgender cast includes Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross, who co-star alongside Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Tony Award(R) winner Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, and newcomers Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside and Angel Bismark Curiel.

Evan Peters and Kate Mara play New Jersey couple “Stan Bowes” and “Patty Bowes,” who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s, as epitomized by “Matt Bromley” (James Van Der Beek), Stan’s boss. Mj Rodriguez stars as “Blanca Rodriguez,” who breaks from the House of Abundance and her former house mother “Elektra Abundance” (Dominique Jackson) to form her own “house,” a self-selected family that provides support to LGBTQ youth rejected by their birth families. Indya Moore plays “Angel,” a streetwalker who develops feelings for her new client, Stan. Ryan Jamaal Swain plays “Damon Richards,” a dancer who joins Blanca’s house. Together they compete in the Balls – where house members challenge each other in various categories and are judged on their outfits, attitude, or dance skills. Under the watchful eye of “Pray Tell” (Billy Porter), Grandfather to all the children who compete in the house balls, Elektra’s House of Abundance and Blanca’s upstart House of Evangelista face off in what may develop into a legendary rivalry.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, with Murphy directing the first two episodes. The series is executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh. Canals and Silas Howard serve as co-executive producers, and Janet Mock, Our Lady J and Erica Kay also serve as producers. The eight-episode first season is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
