As the critical acclaim continues to roll in, STARZ’ breakout series ‘P-Valley’ has already been renewed for a season 2 after just three episodes.
Based on Katori Hall‘s widely celebrated play, ‘P*ssy Valley,’ the series – which 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 – is set to fulfill an 8-episode order for its season 1 before the 10-episode launch of its sophomore season.
Issuing a statement about the news, Christina Davis – head of originals at the network – said the following:
“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 Davis. “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 echoed her excitement.
“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,” she said. “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.”
As of time reported, there is no tentative release date attached to the project’s second season premiere.
