P-Valley was one of the highest-rated shows to emerge in 2020 and its audience grew with each new episode.
It didn’t take long for Starz to renew P-Valley for another season as the show was renewed after just three episodes and fans have been eagerly awaiting its arrival ever since.
But just what do we know about for P-Valley season 2 and its long-awaited return to Starz?
P-Valley first arrived on Starz on July 12th, 2020.
The series, which is based on a play by showrunner and Pulitzer Prize winner Katori Hall, tells the story of The Pynk, a strip club in the fictional city of Chucalissa in the ‘Dirty Delta’ of Mississippi.
Over the course of P-Valley’s first season, we followed several of The Pynk’s employees including Brandee Evans’ Mercedes and Nico Annan’s Uncle Clifford as well as several other larger-than-life characters.
The season ended with Autumn Night becoming the new owner of the Pynk and the changing power dynamics will be a fascinating story thread in season 2.
Especially as we’ve yet to discover whether Mercedes and Uncle Clifford managed to kill Autumn’s gangster ex in the season 1 finale or not.
Season 2’s renewal
P-Valley was renewed by Starz for season 2 on July 27th, 2020, after only three episodes of season 1 had aired.
The series received a hugely positive response from fans and critics alike and over the course of season 1, P-Valley managed to double its audience, a rare feat in the world of TV.
Unsurprisingly, fans have been eager for P-Valley to return ever since season 1 came to an end on September 6th, 2020, now more than one year ago.
Filming for season 2
Back in March 2021, the P-Valley Twitter account put out a casting call, asking for dancers to appear in season 2.
As well setting out a plethora of required skills, the casting call also revealed that filming would be taking place in the summer of 2021.
It was later confirmed that filming began in Atlanta, Georgia in June and according to The Hollywood Reporter, season 2 will consist of 10 episodes, an increase on season 1’s eight chapters.
Season 2 release date
- P-Valley season 2 will release in 2022 although an exact release date has yet to be confirmed.
Earlier in 2021, online rumours suggested that season 2 would air on May 11th but they ultimately proved to be false.
Usually, new seasons of a TV show arrive roughly a year after the previous instalment but thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, production on season 2 wasn’t able to begin until the summer of 2021.
In August, Starz confirmed that P-Valley would be returning in 2022 although the network has yet to give a specific release date but we can expect one closer to the time.
P-Valley has been confirmed for season 2 but no Starz release date has been announced just yet.
