Ryan Murphy’s incredibly empowering show is soon returning as ‘Pose Season 2.’ Set in the 1980s, the series is a dance musical which compares the lifestyles in New York City. Critics appreciate the show on a global level due to its extreme premise. Showrunners renewed the show for Season 2 back in July 2018.

Pose presents us with 1980s ball culture world and the underground social and literary contrast. It has the most extensive cast of transgender actors as series regulars. It empowers the LGBTQ community by having the largest recurring cast of LGBT+ actors (for a scripted series).

Murphy directed the first two episodes of the series. He is also the co-creator of the show along with Brad Falchuk and Steven Canal. The first season of Pose was produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. The first trans black woman director of a primetime drama, Janet Mock is loved for her fine work in Pose.

The Storyline Of Pose Season 2

It was recently revealed that the story of Pose Season 2 will take a one year leap. The first season lived in 1988. Hence, the narrative of the upcoming season will come to life from 1989. It will end by March of 1990. This was when Maddona’s Vogue led the ballroom culture into the mainstream. Hence, the new season will highlight the shimmery yet the darker side of the industry.

The story will enlighten the effects of the song on the mainstream. The bling of ballroom culture was unknown by the industry before Madonna came up. Audiences went crazy, and the sector somehow realized its importance. Hence, the upcoming season is expected to portray the same era with the brilliant cast from Season 1.

Also, Pose Season 2 will also focus on HIV-positive characters. Blanca (Mj Rodriguez) and Pray Tell (Billy Porter) have the fatal disease, and we will see them struggling with their lives in the new installment. The series may explore their stories after they succumb to AIDS.
