Groundbreaking TV series Pose gets renewed for second season

Pose FX renewed for second season

Pose is coming back for a second season!

The news came about in a tweet on the official PoseFX page last night (12 July).

‘We’ve got amazing news,’ the tweet announced. ‘Get ready to snatch more trophies and tissues because season 2 is coming!’

The show’s creator Ryan Murphy said on Twitter: ‘The category is: SECOND SEASON.

‘Congrats to the cast and crew of @PoseOnFX who worked so hard to make history,’ he said.

The groundbreaking show on FX is set in 1980s New York City. It explores various aspects of life in the city, including ‘the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene’.

The ballroom community is a subculture community of the LGBTI world in the United States. In its simplest form, it sees people walking, dancing, and posing for trophies and prizes. Many often also experiment with drag and gender fluidity.

Pose also has the highest number of trans actors in series regular roles on a TV show ever, many of whom are people of color.

Pose accolades 

Indya Moore, one of five transgender stars in Ryan Murphy’s revolutionary FX series Pose, landed her next project earlier this week.

Moore is set to star in and executive produce Magic Hour, a modern-day Frankenstein series.

According to the IMDB description, Magic Hour is a ‘psychedelic-macabre portrait of a mysterious young woman who wakes up one morning without a soul, and roams the streets of Tokyo in search of one’.

Despite all expectations, Ryan Murphy’s show Pose didn’t receive an Emmy Award nomination last night.

VH1 premiered their 2018 Trailblazer Honors last month and honored director Ryan Murphy as a trailblazer.

‘I’m very thrilled and honored to be receiving this award tonight,’ Murphy said at the start of his acceptance speech. ‘And the very fact that I have a career at all is a miracle.’

He then said: ‘When I was first starting out in this business in the late 1990s, it was not easy for me.

‘I was told I was too weird, I was too faggy, I was too unusual.

‘But honestly, it was very painful to be discriminated against because what I wanted to do with my life, with my career, was very simple. And that was to see myself and my experiences on television,’ he also said.
