Category is… Season 2 preview! FX on Thursday released the first footage from the upcoming second installment of Pose, which finds Blanca’s chosen family navigating the (mostly) glamorous world of New York City in 1990.
Among the highlights of this brief-yet-revealing first look: Angel boldly steps into the modeling world, Elektra owns her power (“I’m finally in charge and in control!”), Damon gets a little too physical at the ball, and Blanca receives a disturbing wake-up call relating to her HIV diagnosis.
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, Pose stars Mj Rodriguez (Nurse Jackie) as house mother Blanca Rodriguez-Evangelista, Dominique Jackson (Strut) as Blanca’s rival Elektra Abundance, Billy Porter (American Horror Story: Apocalypse) as ball emcee Pray Tell, Indya Moore as Angel Evangelista, Ryan Jamaal Swain as dancer Damon Richards-Evangelista, Dyllón Burnside (High Maintenance) as Damon’s boyfriend Ricky Evangelista, Evan Peters (American Horror Story) as Angel’s lover Stan Bowes, Kate Mara (House of Cards) as Stan’s wife Patty, among others. Additionally, Sandra Bernhard (Roseanne) joins the cast in Season 2 as Blanca’s doctor Judy Kubrak.
