The cast of season one entered the record books for the most LGBTQ actors in recurring roles.

Tony Award winner Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Dyllón Burnside, and Angel Bismark Curiel also headline the popular, ground-breaking series.

According to FX’s official season two premiere date announcement, the new season will move the story along to the 1990s.

Details on Season 2:

Pose explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society: the underground ball culture, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene that came to define New York in the 1980s. Season two flashes forward in time to 1990. On the heels of the ballroom community establishing itself in pop culture and going mainstream, the House of Evangelista is forced to reevaluate their goals. Meanwhile, the AIDS crisis worsens and the reaction from a group of activists reaches a fever pitch.

Mj Rodriguez stars as Blanca Rodriguez, who breaks from the House of Abundance and her former house mother Elektra (Dominique Jackson) to form her own house, a self-selected family that provides support to LGBTQ youth rejected by their birth families. Indya Moore plays Angel, a streetwalker with modeling aspirations. Ryan Jamaal Swain plays Damon Richards, a dancer who joins Blanca’s house. Together they compete in the Balls—where house members challenge each other in various categories and are judged on their outfits, attitude, or dance skills. Under the watchful eye of Billy Porter as Pray Tell, Grandfather to all the children who compete in the house balls.
