Pose confirms final season
Third season with Queer / Trans characters and actors will be the last.
Queer / Trans-drama Pose has confirmed a third and final season.
The series made US history by featuring the largest cast of transgender actors series regulars ever assembled, along with the most LBGTQ actors in recurring roles ever. In addition, many of the producers, writers, directors, and crew were people of colour and members of the LGBTQ community.
“’Write the TV show you want to watch!’ That’s what I was told in 2014 while completing my MFA in screenwriting,” said Steven Canals, executive producer, writer, director and co-creator of Pose.
“At the time we weren’t seeing very many Black and Latinx characters — that happened to also be LGBTQ+ — populating screens. And so I wrote the first draft of a pilot the ‘younger me’ deserved. Pose was conceived as a love letter to the underground NY ballroom community, to my beloved New York, to my queer & trans family, to myself. I, along with my incredible collaborators, never intended on changing the TV landscape. I simply wanted to tell an honest story about family, resilience, and love. How fortunate am I to have done that for three seasons. I’m filled with gratitude to our intrepid writers, cast, crew, and producers who worked tirelessly to make Pose come to life, humbled by our loyal audience, thankful to the ballroom community who trusted us to tell their story, overwhelmed by the critics who warmly embraced us, and forever indebted to Ryan Murphy, FX, and 20th Television for changing my life.”
Pose screens in Australia on FOX Showcase.
