After months of uncertainty, it looks like FX's much-lauded Pose series is starting up the gears again.
Earlier this year, the show had to pause its production in the wake of the ongoing global pandemic. At the time they were quite early in the process, reportedly only having filmed for the first episode. The pandemic threw a wrench in everything.
Not only was production paused indefinitely, but it called into question the possibility of doing certain types of scenes when things started back up.
"Things like kissing — we will likely forgo those moments," show creator Steven Canals told Variety over the summer. "The place on our show where the biggest impact will be felt will be the ball scenes: Those scenes have 125 to 150 background actors. That’s tricky, because that’s such an important and critical part of our show and the narrative. We’re just, only now, having conversations of ‘Is there a world where we forgo these things?’”
While that hasn't been answered publicly, according to Variety, filming is slated to start back up in October. The trade journal wrote that the cast is being tested for the virus at the center of the pandemic prior to the start of filming.
Thre isn't much information on the third season's plans. When we left them, the original House of Evangelista had all but disbanded as Blanca's children had grown up and begun to leave her nest. In their place, Blanca had seemingly found two new house children.
Billy Porter is reportedly set to direct an episode of the third season.
