Moments ago, it was announced that the groundbreaking FX series will be bowing out with an abbreviated season 3.
Set to premiere May 2 with a double episode, the series will wrap for good on June 3.
Creator and executive producer Steven Canals said of the news:
“’Write the TV show you want to watch!’ That’s what I was told in 2014 while completing my MFA in screenwriting. 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.”
The Emmy-win show, which spotlights the LGBTQ ballroom scene of the 80s and 90s, has been met with rapturous applause since its debut and earned it the more with its sophomore run.
For its upcoming outing, viewers are promised a deeper delving into the various challenges faced by the likes Blanca, Electra, PrayTell, Angel, and co.
