Today, Starz said that it had picked up a third season of the popular drama P-Valley. Given that the programme has continued to set records for the streamer’s audience throughout its first two seasons, this is not particularly surprising. P-Valley is officially the most popular programme on Starz, averaging 10.3 million viewers across linear, VOD, and streaming platforms every episode. The next third season will have 10 one-hour episodes, same like the second season, which ended recently in August.
The focus of P-Valley, which is based on the play Pussy Valley by the show’s creator Katori Hall, is on the frequently larger-than-life characters associated with the titular little-strip-club-that-could, the Pynk, which operates in the fictitious town of Chucalissa in the rural Mississippi Delta. The show has been dubbed “where trap music meets cinema noir and dares to examine what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the bounds of their constricted circumstances” and tells the “story of survival, chosen family, soulmates, politics, love, and death.”
P-Valley has a perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating in its first season, which made it an instant sensation when it debuted on Starz in July 2020. The success persisted throughout the Pynk’s sophomore season, which saw the Pynk fighting to survive an epidemic that affected the entire world. The season’s introduction of contentious subjects like abortion, homophobia, men’s mental health, and domestic violence, which frequently sparked discussion on Twitter, upped the drama.
According to Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming, STARZ, “‘P-Valley’ continues to keep viewers on the edge of their seats as it captures the subtleties of the Mississippi Delta with an extraordinary level of humanity and craftsmanship.” “Authentic and fascinating characters that have won over reviewers and viewers alike help this multi-layered drama transcend the glamour. We are eagerly anticipating season three of Katori’s show.
Hall, the show’s creator, additionally issued a comment regarding the renewal, stating;
“I consider myself really fortunate to have the chance to pen the following chapter of ‘P-Valley.'” The fact that our programme has been welcomed by people all over the world makes me incredibly happy. With its rich, dynamic, and charmingly flawed characters, it is a love letter to underrepresented populations in the American South that infrequently see themselves reflected on film. Without our fervently loyal Pynk Posse, we wouldn’t be mounting that pony again. You are our flame.
And a special thanks to the show’s fuel: everyone who contributed. This programme was created with a lot of love, grit, and sparkle by the authors, producers, cast, crew, and executives. We won’t be back on your screens for a Mississippi minute, but you better believe it will be worthwhile.
Nicco Annan, Elarica Johnson, Brandee Evans, Shannon Thornton, J. Alphonse Nicholson Parker Sawyers, Harriett D. Foy, Dan J. Johnson (“Corbin”), and Morocco Omari are some of the actors who appear in P-Valley Season 2. Megan Thee Stallion, a rapper, made a much-anticipated guest appearance in the second season. With Johnson’s portrayal of the main character Hailey/Autumn Night leaving the programme at the end of the second season, the third season is guaranteed to feature some new characters.
Along with Dante Di Loreto, Hall also acts as the show’s showrunner and executive producer for Lionsgate TV.
The third season’s premiere date has not yet been announced by Starz, but based on the aforementioned statement by showrunner Hall, it may be some time before the show returns. But you can currently watch seasons one and two on the platform.
Below is the trailer for P-Valley’s season 2.
