Celebrated FX series Pose has received some good news this Pride Month - a renewal for its third season.

The series, which stars Billy Porter and features a record number of trans characters portrayed by trans actors, has experienced a growth in ratings, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and is also firming up as a favourite for next Awards season.

"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 chairman John Landgraf said in a statement yesterday.

He continued: “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.”

Highlighting the queer New York City ballroom scene, the second season of Pose is set in 1990 against the backdrop of a worsening AIDS epidemic and pop culture - in particular Maddona's 'Vogue' - taking the ballroom scene mainstream.
