With groundbreaking TV drama Pose coming to an end, its cast and crew have been sharing their reactions.

It was announced last week that the upcoming third season of the show's Emmy Award-winning drag ball series will be its last.

"Pose gave me a massive opportunity & changed my life," tweeted Costas star Johnny Sibilly.

"It's changed many lives & conversations. Sad to see it end but happy it's shifted the queer & television landscape. I'll be tuning in for the final dip. You should too."

Next to a behind-the-scenes shot, director Janet Mock also added on Twitter: "November 2017. My first day on the set of POSE. Didn't know then that my life would be forever enriched.

"I am so grateful for the 25 episodes we made together, as a family. The final 7 episodes, marking the beginning of the end of POSE, starts Sunday May 2 on FX."

Holding back tears, Lil Papi's Angel Bismark Curiel said of the news in a video: "Naturally it's very bittersweet. Excited for new beginnings, right? I think we all should be. But also, my heart is aching.

"You spend three years with these storylines and these characters, and these people, and it's naturally very hard to go from spending 18-hour days with these folks, from one day to the next, and not having them around as much," he added.
