Even while luxury cable networks like HBO and Showtime usually garner all the attention, upstart Starz shocked everyone in 2020 with its smash series P-Valley. P-Valley, a drama about the life of the employees of a Mississippi strip club, was quickly renewed for a second season after receiving positive reviews and high ratings in its debut season.
The network’s decision to reveal the news in July 2020, more than halfway through the first season, was a significant vote of confidence. When asked about P-popularity Valley among audiences and critics, Starz originals chief Christina Davis said, “The Pynk comes alive with the authentic and intriguing personalities that make the Pynk,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
P Valley Season 2 Plot
It’s safe to say that Season 2 of P-Valley will be anchored by two major storylines. “To see Uncle Clifford and Hailey fight over the kingdom will be the stuff of legends,” Hall told Entertainment Weekly in September 2020 that the club’s power dynamics have changed. “Also, Mercedes will continue to face out against her personal Goliath, respectability politics.
Do you think she can keep her dance studio and daughter? Will she ever be able to triumph over her mother, the former pimp who is now a pastor? Only time will tell if this is a good idea or not.” Also, Hall hinted at a Season 1 finale answer to what happened in the Paradise Room. What happened in the Paradise Room “will permanently bind Uncle Clifford, Mercedes, and Hailey,” says the narrator.
Hall has announced on Twitter that Season 2 will include more of the characters’ backstories and the events leading up to their employment at the Pynk. The second season of the show will feature an increased amount of music composed by Mississippi-based artists.

Musicians and producers who are both Black and female, and who are native to the state, are encouraged to submit their work to Hall via Twitter on August 31st. Hall tweeted, “Always searching for more MS artists, so pls shoot to @pvalleywriters.” It’s an honor for ESP to be introduced to the work of MS Black Female Artists and Producers.
Finally, the coronavirus may appear in the Season 2 storyline. For Hall, there’s a tale to tell about how Black people are afflicted by this disease and how they came up with a plan to live. Speaking to EW, she provided additional information, revealing that “I can’t wait to see Uncle Clifford decked out in a rhinestone mask and lace gloves for our show’s discussion of the current state of the globe. I can’t wait to see her again. ‘”
According to a story from Deadline on Feb. 2, viewers will watch how The Pynk, in particular, survives the pandemic. “The events of Season 2 take place five months after the Season 1 finale,” Hall said during the panel discussion.

P Valley Season 2 Release Date
— P-Valley (@PValleySTARZ) May 11, 2022
A coronavirus pandemic is “making it impossible to shoot,” according to P-Valley creator Katori Hall, who said as much in a September 2020 Twitter Q&A. “It will take forever to set up for production.” It seemed evident that P-Valley would not return until late 2022 after a casting call in March 2021 requested performers who were available to film in the summer.
For the first time ever, Starz has stated that the show will return on June 3 of 2022. As of May 11th, Starz has released the first official trailer for Season 2, which teases plenty of conflicts as well as some COVID-related economic issues.
Season 2 will be 25% longer, according to the show’s Twitter account. Season 2 will contain ten episodes rather than the eight that comprised Season 1. A five-year strategy for the program is in place if it maintains its current high ratings – the show’s launch was the most-watched in Starz history.
