Following Pose‘s successful second season premiere, FX has officially renewed Ryan Murphy’s Golden Globe-nominated drama series for a third season. The season two premiere was the most-watched telecast of the series which took in more than a million in total viewers.
“Pose has elevated our culture and the TV landscape like few shows before it, and we are honored to partner with co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals on a third season,” FX Networks and FX Productions chairman John Landgraf said. “Our thanks to the entire creative team, including Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh, Janet Mock, Our Lady J, Erica Kay, the amazing cast and crew and everyone at Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions for this incredibly entertaining, enlightening and groundbreaking series.”
The season two debut of Pose (6/11/19, 10 p.m.-11p.m.) delivered 1.2 million Total Viewers and 572,00 Adults 18-49, generating series high ratings in Total Viewers, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54 and all key women demos on a Live+3 basis.

In all, the premiere telecast, two encores and streaming have delivered 1.8 million Total Viewers in the first five days.
Pose explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene. The first season earned rave reviews from critics who praised the combination of style, energy, exhilarating drama and performances from its cast and garnered solid ratings for a cable series, averaging about 600,000 viewers per episode.
After an extensive nationwide search helmed by award-winning casting director Alexa Fogel (Atlanta), co-creator Ryan Murphy (American Crime Story, American Horror Story) and his collaborators made television history by assembling 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 as Blanca Rodriguez, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross. Also co-starring are Tony Award winner Billy Porter as Pray Tell, Charlayne Woodard as well as newcomers Ryan Jamaal Swain as Damon Richards and Dyllon Burnside.
Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. The series is executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh. Canals is a co-executive producer, and Janet Mock, Our Lady J, and Erica Kay also serve as producers.
