First, the Fat Boys break up now this… FX has announced their groundbreaking series, “Pose,” will end with the third season.
Season 3 of the series co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, is slated to premiere on May 2 at 10 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes.
The final season will only offer seven episodes for us to gather ourselves and say our final goodbyes.
Here’s what you can expect from “Pose” season 3:
It’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for Blanca (Mj Rodriguez) who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell (Billy Porter) contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.
Ryan Murphy shared his thoughts on the incredible series saying:
We got to tell the exact story we wanted, as we wanted to tell it, and I’m incredibly honored and grateful. Pose’s story may end in 1996, but its impact will go on forever.
Pose has been one of the creative highlights of my entire career. From the very beginning when Steven Canals and I sat down to hear his vision and ideas for the show, it has been a passion project.
To go from the beginning of my career in the late 90s when it was nearly impossible to get an LGBTQ character on television to Pose — which will go down in history for having the largest LGBTQ cast of all time — is a truly full circle moment for me.
Indya Moore, who stars as Angel Evangelista on the series, took to social media to share a heartfelt message about her experience on the show.
This project has been life changing to so many people. Both in & out of the TV show.
I learned a-lot, & while some lessons will take more time to apply, this show has helped me to be okay with how deep, complex & challenging being human can be. I learned from each & every character & from each and every person playing those characters.
Unlike many of the hard working incredible actors on our show, I didn’t always show up my best, and there are times I let people down, including our beloved ‘Lil Papi, played by Angel.
dreams come true didn’t curb pain, anger, or traumatic cynicism. I lost friends, betrayed by friends, and no matter what It seemed I could never exit chaos. seemed to unfold anywhere I find peace & While i work on turning down the noise, I was able to find the discipline to work around it, b/c the people who gave me my Job didn’t stop believing in me- & had some of them not been people who came from where I came & lived some of what I lived, & knew the world I was “up against”.
They probably would have let me go w/ all my bags on the side of the road long ago.
this is the clearest I’ve been in a long time, the most discipline i have ever had access to & the heartest I have ever worked. There were times I was absolutely terrified of giving it my all b/c I didn’t want to get lost. but I eventually did b/c I really just wanted to do a good job. Did it take from me? Yes. And it still was the best decision I probably ever made, If I could go back & make it earlier I would have.
This show will always be apart of me. Thank you Ryan, Brad, steven Janet Lady J, Alexis all my cast, especially to Angel B. Curiel. Performing Angel with Lil Papi was life changing. YOU are life changing. Thank you everyone for giving your all and for showing me what gentleness, sweetness devotion & love gets to looks like in family.
Thank you FX networks, Disney Ryan everyone who believed in me, in us, just like they believed in this show.
Your faith in us helped us have faith in us.
My fans. I feel so much love for you all. Thank you for loving & supporting my art.
