‘Pose’ Season 3 On Pause Due To The Pandemic, Major Changes Expected

Published: Tuesday 30th Jun 2020 by Sam

‘Pose’ was eight days into filming of its third season when the pandemic caused for an abrupt halt.

Now, at a time when the groundbreaking ballroom hit was meant to be on air, details are emerging about the behind the scenes happenings at the FX series.

Full story below…

In an interview with Variety, Indya Moore, who plays Angel Evangelista, shared:

“When production paused, I wasn’t shocked—I knew it would happen—but it was a bittersweet moment for me. On the one hand, if anyone had gotten sick, it surely would have spread fast. On the other hand, most folks working on a production are living paycheck to paycheck. So I was worried about how they are going to survive.

[We’ll be okay, though] The ‘Pose’ family is hanging in there, trying to take care of ourselves.”

The show’s co-creator Steven Canals went on to reveal that changes are on the horizon when production resumes. He told Variety:

“Things like kissing—we will likely forgo those moments. The place on our show where the biggest impact will be felt will be the ball scenes: Those scenes have 125 to 150 background actors. That’s tricky, because that’s such an important and critical part of our show and the narrative. We’re just, only now, having conversations of ‘Is there a world where we forgo these things?’”

Their words come as lead MJ Rodriguez, who plays Blanca Evangelista, lost both her grandmother and aunt to the global health crisis.


Our thoughts are with the cast.

We patiently (and excitedly) await the return of this trailblazing show.

    I love this show. It’s amazing. Great job on recreating the 80’s and the 90’s. Your right on point!!!! I’m a lady, and I’m jealous of all the ladies on the show. They have banging bodies and make me feel ashamed at times. Keep up the great work Mr.Canalas et al. I’m going to be in the Brooklyn area specifically Bedford Stuyvesant area. Will you be filming? Please advise via email. Ty.

    I watched this show back to back episode for episode for episode with my wife. We are excited to see the new season. They’ve done a wonderful job and every single fan will wait as long as we have to. This show changes perspectives and enhances unity within this entire fan base. Not only communities who share common interests but also people who aren’t familiar with that scenery. Thanks for all your determination and sincerity to us viewers!

    This season should probably be the hardest season to watch as Blanca is now full blown and a few others like Ricky, Praytell and Electra(?) have been diagnosed with H**. We have lost an entire generation of amazingly talented and vastly creative people especially in the early 90s, so I hope the series will proceed accordingly- much to our dismay- by showing the dreadful and sad demise of the aformentioned and possibly more, like some members of the Council. Since this show is pretty authentic and real to the A*** crisis, then there will be some shocking moments, even more so than Candy’s murder. Man, how I wish that I could write one episode, or even just a scene on this show! It is so incredible. Looking forward to Season 3.

    I love this show. It represents unity in our community when things are thick. And it also helps those hiding in the shadows to come out and burn that closet. Can’t wait for season 3. I look forward to it.

    I’m ecstatic about Pose it helps me understand what my brothers left our small town in MO for. They died of A*** in 91 & 98 thank you for this show I constantly watch the first two seasons and think of my brothers. Again thank you with love!

    • FormerSmallTownBoy July 6, 2020

      It’s hard for a small town boy to hide his true self in am environment that condemns his very existence. Your brothers were able to experience freedom during their short lifetime. God bless you for being a loving sister. My condolences to you on your loss. May they forever live in your heart.

    I like the show, and I appreciate that the kissing scenes will be cut back on.
    The show is so much better than that. Thank you.
