FX announced this morning that the groundbreaking Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning drama on New York’s underground ball culture will end with a seven-episode third season, premiering with two episodes on Sunday, May 2. The series finale is scheduled for June 2. Pose Season 1 consisted of eight episodes, while Season 2 had 10. "We got to tell the exact story we wanted, as we wanted to tell it, and I'm incredibly honored and grateful," co-creator Ryan Murphy said in a statement. Fellow co-creator Steven Canals, who has signed deal with 20th Television, said in his own statement: "'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 N.Y. ballroom community, to my beloved New York, to my queer and 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."
