'P-Valley' Sets Starz Record For Largest Season-To-Season Growth As Season 2 Premiere Is Up 1000% Percent From Season 1

Starz has announced that the critically-acclaimed series P-Valley has broken a huge record with its season 2 premiere being 1000% up from season 1!

Specifically, the growth season-over-season shows that the season 2 premiere is up 1,018% from its series debut on the Starz app.

This results in the highest amount of growth in the history of the Starz app, along with massive subscriber numbers for it.

The series, which premiered its second season on June 3, was already a main driver of subscription growth and its numbers have made it one of the best-performing series of all time for Starz.

The series drew 4.5 million multiplatform viewers for its season two premiere weekend in the U.S. alone, and this is without all available services reporting their numbers yet.

The second season from creator, executive producer and Pulitzer Prize winner Katori Hall, also boasts the title of one of the most socially engaged series on social media.

“Katori and the entire ‘P-Valley’ team have done an amazing job bringing audiences a second season that has delivered record-setting viewer performance and subscription growth, and through its incredible storytelling has continued driving cultural conversation and critical acclaim,” said Alison Hoffman, President, Domestic Networks at STARZ. “The series exemplifies our commitment to amplifying narratives by, about and for women and underrepresented audiences, and we are so proud of its continued success.”

Halll commented on the show's massive success saying:

“Our Pynk Posse showed up and showed out! The incredible response to season two feels like such a gift after the challenging pause of these past few years, but we’re back and we’re just getting started y’all. I am bursting with pride seeing the Pynk Posse grow and watching the sense of community and family that forms as we bring this new season to the world. Hearing from viewers that they have felt seen, heard and celebrated is exactly what everyone working on the show hoped for. Being able to showcase our community’s resilience has been so meaningful and rewarding, and I can’t wait for y’all to come on down to the valley to see the rest of what we have in store.”
