The FX drama Pose has been renewed ahead of airing the final two episodes of its debut season. The second season will premiere in 2019.

The series from Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy (producer of Broadway’s The Boys in the Band alongside David Stone) explores the golden age of New York City’s LGBTQ ball culture scene through the predominantly Black and Latinx queer community that shaped it.

The cast includes five trans actors of color in series regular roles—the highest number yet for a scripted series. Among them are stage alums Mj Rodriguez (Street Children), Dominique Jackson (Incongruence), and Hailie Sahar (Charm), as well as Indya Moore and Angelica Ross. The cast also includes Tony winner Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllon Burnside, Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, and Angel Bismark Curiel.

The ‘80s-set series has been touted, in part, for its high-energy and eclectic soundtrack that’s permeated boisterous balls, dance auditions, and more tender, intimate moments. A recent episode included a duet of The Wiz’s “Home” from Porter and Rodriguez.
