Some of Viceland‘s shows have been on seriously realistic issues and their production team has always encouraged that sort of hard-hitting, offbeat content. Their ball culture series, known as ‘My House’ is one such show that gained a lot of attention in its first season when it released on April 25, 2018.
The series has carried forward the culture since the movie “Paris is Burning” was documented 30 years ago, which highlighted the New York ball culture and the House and Ball community back in the 1980s. The series is produced by Viceland and produced by Chester Algernal Gordon (talent producer), Gisselle Bailey (Senior Producer), Sean David Johson (Executive producer) and others.
‘My House’ aired ten episodes as part of its first season. It was also aired in France on Canal+ on September 9, 2018, and made its way to YouTube in fall 2019. The series has won several accolades including the MIPCOM Diversify TV’s Excellence Award, for Representation of LGBTQ in the Non-Scripted category. Now the question is, will there be a ‘My House’ Season 2? We will answer that but first, let’s quickly look into the details of the series.
My House Cast: Who’s in it?
‘My House’ is a show based on the house and ball culture brewing in New York and slowly other parts of the world. The series consists of artists like Tati 007, Alex Mugler, Jelani Mizrahi, Lolita Balenciaga, Relish Milan, and the commentator Precious Ebony. The series shows how different people blend into a scene that has been brewing for decades.
The above-mentioned characters play an integral part in the series but there plenty other background artists. However, the ten episodes premiered in the first season, consist mostly of primary artists with some different commentators at times.
What is My House About?
‘My House’ is based on an LGBTQ sub-culture that traces back its emergence to New York in the 1980s, known for House and Ball. The series depicts the hyperactive underground scene of this culture of ballrooms, and the story revolves around the characters and their stories regarding their sexuality, hardships, and their ode to bring themselves higher in terms of competitiveness and to improve their own art form.
Tati plays one of the protagonists of the series. We see Tati leave the House of Mugler and struggle to stand on her own while the Muglers hold a meeting to discuss her exit and their next plan. Meanwhile, Jelani opens up about homosexuality to his father as Relish looks determined to win the Kiki Ball. Precious and Alex also have struggles of their own as they ponder life outside the ballroom scene.
The series touches the overall underground queer ballroom culture with Tati participating in the Women’s March in order to increase the presence of black Trans women in the scene. The story takes a turn when Tati is courted by the House on Lanvin to join. At the end of the season, the crew visits Chicago to battle at the Annual Midwest Awards Ball. The show is a total insider’s look at the queer ballroom culture and everything that comes with the associated glitz and glamour.
My House Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘My House’ Season 1 premiered on May 25, 2018, on Vice TV and consisted of 10 episodes each running for around 22 minutes. The last episode from the first season was aired on July 27, 2018. With the audience lauding the efforts to bring out such an intriguing topic, the makers of ‘My House’ may think of renewing the series for another season and bringing it to the viewers.
But as of now, there is no news or updates on the comeback of the series from the makers or even from Viceland. However, till then you guys can binge-watch the first season of the series on Vice TV. We expect that ‘My House’ Season 2 will release sometime in late 2020, or in mid-2021, more likely. We will keep you posted with updates.
