'Pose' Season 3 Will Likely Look Different Because of COVID-19 Restrictions

The third season of the groundbreaking FX series Pose was in the middle of production when the COVID-19 pandemic shut things down.

Now, when things pick up again and the show is allowed to resume filming, you can expect the show to look a little different.

“‘Things like kissing — we will likely forgo those moments,” show creator Steven Canals said in a new interview with Variety. “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?’”

Those that watch the series will know that that ballroom scenes are an integral part of the show, so hopefully they’ll be able to work it into the program somehow!

The show’s star Billy Porter spoke up for the black LGBTQ+ community in a new video on Instagram.

Directors Quentin Tarantino & Lulu Wang Get Honored at Final Draft Awards!

Quentin Tarantino throws up the peace sign while hitting the carpet at the 2020 Final Draft Awards held at the Paramount Theatre on Tuesday (January 21) in Hollywood.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director celebrated the art of screenwriting during his induction into the Final Draft Hall of Fame at the award ceremony.

Quentin revealed filmmaker Walter Hill was his inspiration to become a screenwriter: “Walter was one of my biggest heroes growing up,” he said (via Variety). “I had only read two scripts and they were so effing dry. But when I read ‘Hard Times,’ it wasn’t just description. It wasn’t just a blue print for how to do the movie. I was supposed to make the movie in my mind. When the script was over and I put it down, I saw the movie.”

The Farewell director Lulu Wang was also honored at the event with the new voice award for film, presented by Parasite filmmaker Bong Joon Ho.

The awards show, which honors the year’s best in screenwriting and is presented by popular screenwriting software program Final Draft, also recognized Pose creator Steven Canals with the New Voice Award for TV presented by his stars Angel Bismark Curiel and MJ Rodriguez.
