LGBTQ series Pose has been renewed for a second season

FX

FX has ordered a second season of Ryan Murphy’s groundbreaking series Pose. 

Set in 1987, the critically-acclaimed drama “examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world”.

Pose made history by featuring the largest amount of trans actors in regular roles of any scripted TV series in history.

The cast includes: Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross, Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside and Angel Bismark Curiel.

A spokesperson for FX said: “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, Steven Canals, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh, and the incredible cast and crew to continue this groundbreaking journey that is Pose.”

The penultimate episode of the first season airs this Sunday, with the second season to premiere in 2019.
