The series which highlights the LGBTQ ballroom scene of the ’80s and ’90s recently got renewed for its third season, shortly after the series returned for its sophomore run.

The announcement came on Monday from the show’s official Twitter page. Pose writer, director, and producer, Janet Mock also shared the exciting news on Twitter.

“Thank you FX Networks for giving us a chance and a home. Thank you to the viewers for showing up for us and making our season 2 premiere the MOST WATCHED in our series history!
