As anticipation for ‘Pose’ season two grows, it’s been confirmed that the popular series will be sashaying onto Netflix.
In an announcement made moments ago, the streaming giant confirmed that the Ryan Murphy and Steven Canals creation will debut on the service on May 10th; almost a month to the day the show’s sophomore run kicks off on FX (June 9th)
‘Pose’ has been praised in earnest for its immersive take on the LGBTQ scene in the late 80s and the challenges faced by the community at that time.
Upon its premiere, the show – which is anchored the likes of MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, and Billy Porter – made history for featuring the most trans actors of any series in history. It notably also includes trans writers behind the scenes – including Janet Mock.
The Netflix deal, which doesn’t impact the show’s FX run, won’t come as much of a surprise to those in the know about Murphy’s new partnership with the big N.
For, last Summer he signed a huge $300 million five-year deal to produce projects for the streamer exclusively.
Just this week, he revealed he already has 10 shows ready to roll. And while ‘Pose’ isn’t one of them, it’s encouraging to see the series placed on such a potent platform and thus broadening its reach.
