After just three episodes, P-Valley has earned a well-deserved renewal at Starz. The critically-acclaimed series has a super rare 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The second season of the show will feature 10 episodes, two up from the first season’s eight-episode order.
From showrunner and executive producer Katori Hall, the series is based on her acclaimed play, Pussy Valley. The series stars Brandee Evans, Nicco Annan, Shannon Thornton, Elarica Johnson, Skyler Joy, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Parker Sawyers, Harriet D. Foy, Tyler Lepley and Dan J. Johnson.
The official description: Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors—the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.
“P-Valley has quickly become this summer’s newest must-see television series as critics and audiences alike are taken up by the authentic and compelling characters that make the Pynk come alive,” said Starz head of originals, Christina Davis in a statement. “Katori has delivered a provocative drama that looks beyond the glitz and into the hearts and minds of these fully realized and compelling characters, exploring them through a female gaze that invites the audience to take a walk in their stilettos. We know Katori has a lot of incredible stories to tell and a lot in store for these women in a second season.”
Hall said, “I am beyond overjoyed by P-Valley’s season two renewal, which is truly a reflection of the amazing work done by the hundreds of artists and technicians who laid their expert hands on this dream of mine. “Despite the challenges we face in bringing the stories of marginalized and stigmatized folks to the small screen, P-Valley debuted on Starz at the right time — in this moment in which we as a nation have been forced to consider how we treat our most disenfranchised citizens. I am so grateful for this chance to get back up on that pole and to dig deeper into the lives and stories of the Pynk family.”
