FX announced this week that it is renewing its ballroom musical drama "Pose" for a second season, which will air sometime next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The number of episodes has not been announced.

"Pose," co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals, made TV history for featuring the largest cast of transactors in a series.

"Ryan Murphy has once again revolutionized television with 'Pose,' an incredibly engaging story of creativity, courage, compassion, love, and family at a pivotal time in our culture," FX CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. "As television critics have universally acknowledged, there is simply nothing like 'Pose' on TV, so effortlessly excelling on every creative level and earning a place in television history for its infectiously inclusive spirit.

"We are honored to partner with our producers Ryan, Brad Falchuk, Steven Canals, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh, and the incredible cast and crew to continue this groundbreaking journey that is Pose," he added.

Earlier this week, Murphy said "Pose" was "the highlight of my career" and talked about the show with Janet Mock, a trans activist who wrote and directed a number of episodes. She also became the first trans woman of color to direct a TV show.

"Ryan Murphy and his talented collaborators Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Steven Canals, Alexis Martin Woodall and Sherry Marsh have truly outdone themselves with this triumphant show that is as universal in its themes of love and family as it is specific and important and one of a kind," Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman told The Hollywood Reporter. "We are so proud of what they've achieved and grateful to John and FX for their steadfast belief in the series."

Though Murphy had a hand in creating and shaping "Pose," the out producer is leaving his longtime home of 20th Century Fox TV, which owns FX, for Netflix, after the streaming service offered him a $300 million deal. Nevertheless, The Hollywood Reporter writes Murphy will still serve as an executive producer on "Pose."
