The ball is coming!
After announcing that Pose would be returning for its third and final season this May, FX has now released the show's final trailer. It features the cast we've come to know and love both in and out of the ballroom. There seems to be a wedding, ball scenes, as well as at least a cameo appearance by Jeremy Pope. And the looks honey, the looks.
"This season will be filled with all of the love, the laughter, and tears that you have come to expect from the Evangelista family," show co-creator and executive producer Steven Canals said when he announced the show was coming to an end. "I, along with my television collaborators, never intended on changing the television landscape. I simply wanted to tell an honest story about family, resilience and love."
The final season will span seven episodes with the first two dropping on May 2 and the season finale airing on June 6, all on FX. We will jump to 1994, three years ahead of where season two ended. Here, we will find Angel and Lil Papi, played by Indya Moore and Angel B. Curiel, still together. We will also find Blanca, played by Mj Rodriguez, now working as a nurse's aide — she seems to be the aide for Sandra Bernhard's Judy Kubrak. Pray Tell, embodied by the Emmy-winning Billy Porter, will not only reminisce on some of the better days of ballroom, but we will also see him struggle with his health as a result of his HIV diagnosis. It seems that Ricky Wintour, played by Dyllon Burnside will also make a return, and from the looks of the trailer, he may be thrown out of his home.
Jeremy Pope makes a cameo at a ball, but it is not clear what role he will play. What is clear is that the ballroom scenes we love will be returning. And honestly, that's all we can ask for.
