The House of Evangelista better clear some more room on that trophy shelf because FX has renewed Pose for another season after last week’s second season premiere was the most-watched episode in the series’ history.
“Pose has elevated our culture and the TV landscape like few shows before it, and we are honored to partner with co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals on a third season,” said John Landgraf, Chairman, FX Networks and FX Productions. “Our thanks to the entire creative team, including Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh, Janet Mock, Our Lady J, Erica Kay, the amazing cast and crew and everyone at Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions for this incredibly entertaining, enlightening and groundbreaking series.”
This is good news for the entire Pose team, especially Murphy, who already knows when he would like Pose to walk in its final ball.
“The running theme is the HIV crisis and how it affected the community. The medications that helped stop the plague came out in 1996. So I wanted to end the show right as that happened,” he recently told NewNowNext. “To show the decimation of a world. There is not a lot of LGBTQ history. There’s just not. I grew up knowing nothing. This show will be available on Netflix, and will be available to close to 200 million people worldwide, so that responsibility is important to me.”
A premiere date has not been announced, but the third season will most likely debut in summer 2020.
