Stream and screen new episodes of season 2 every Sunday
A third season of the award-winning and history-making series is greenlit following the launch of Season 2.
Hot off the ‘ballroom’ heels of the season 2 launch, Foxtel today announced that a third season of the award-winning and ground-breaking drama series Pose from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions, will be coming to Australian audiences in 2020.
Season 2 of the truly revolutionary drama series, is available to stream on Foxtel and screen on FOX SHOWCASE, the home of FX Originals, Sundays at 9:30pm AEST.
Brian Walsh, Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television, said: “We are proud of series like Pose, which promotes tolerance and diversity and we are delighted it has been commissioned for a third season to screen exclusively on Foxtel in 2020. Ryan Murphy is one of the most brilliant and creative minds in television and Pose is yet another example of the commercial and critical hits he continues to bring to the screen.
“FX Originals are a prolific supplier to Foxtel and as part of our exclusive, multi-year deal we are pleased to continue to deliver their entertaining, enlightening and ground-breaking series to our customers.”
Elevating our culture and pushing the boundaries of the TV landscape, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s.
Season 2 flashes forward in time to 1990. On the heels of the ballroom community establishing itself in pop culture and going mainstream, the House of Evangelista is forced to reevaluate their goals. Meanwhile, the AIDS crisis worsens and the reaction from a group of activists reaches a fever pitch.
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, Tony Award® winner Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside, Angel Bismark Curiel and Sandra Bernhard.
Mj Rodriguez stars as “Blanca Rodriguez,” who breaks from the House of Abundance and her former house mother “Elektra” (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 with modeling aspirations. 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 Billy Porter as “Pray Tell,” Grandfather to all the children who compete in the house balls.
Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. The series is executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Canals, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh. Janet Mock is co-executive producer, Our Lady J is supervising producer, and Erica Kay serves as a producer.
