Media outlets are reporting that Starz have renewed drama series P-Valley for a second season.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
P-Valley is set down deep in the Mississippi Delta, where lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. The Southern-fried hourlong drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors: the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawn shop.
Christina Davis, President of Original Programming at Starz, released a statement saying:
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. Katori has delivered a provocative drama that looks beyond the glitz and into the hearts and minds of these fully realised 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.
The series have been gaining strong viewership for Starz since its premiere, setting a new record on the Starz App for most viewed series premiere and then growing its viewership on the app by 37% over the first three episodes. It’s also ranked in the top five of all premium series among African American households, according to Starz and Nielsen stats.
The series is created and showrun by Katori Hall and stars Brandee Evans, Nicco Annan, Shannon Thornton, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Skyler Joy, Parker Sawyers, Elarica Johnson, Harriett D. Foy, Tyler Lepley, Dan J. Johnson, Ricco Ross, Isaiah Washington, Loretta Devine, Thomas Q. Jones and Josh Ventura.
