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 Mississippi strip club drama that received critical praise and excellent ratings in its debut season, was quickly renewed for a second run.
The network’s decision to announce the news in July 2020, with more than half of the first season still to run, was a strong indication of their faith in the show’s ability.
When asked about P-popularity Valley among fans and critics, Starz originals chief Christina Davis said, “The Pynk comes alive with the real and intriguing personalities that constitute the Pynk,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fans can now focus on what P-Valley Season 2 will look like and when we might get to see it, given that the show has been renewed. As of now, here’s everything we know about the show’s cast members and the release date.
P-Valley Season 2: Plot
Fans of P-Valley Season 2 may look forward to two major stories. “To see Uncle Clifford and Hailey fight for the kingdom will be the stuff of legends,” Hall told Entertainment Weekly in September 2020 that the club’s power dynamics had altered.
Even though Mercedes will continue to struggle for her life against the great Goliath of respectability politics. Do you think she can keep her dancing studio and daughter? Will she ever be able to triumph against her mother, the former prostitute who is now a pastor? We’ll have to wait and see.
After season one’s finale, Hall hinted that the Paradise Room was not what it seemed. What happened in the Paradise Room will bind Uncle Cliff, Mercedes, and Hailey forever, I can only say that.
Pynk backstory and how the people ended up working there will be explored in Season 2, according to Hall on Twitter. The show’s second season will also feature additional Mississippi-based original music.
Earlier this month, Hall tweeted a request for contributions from local artists, particularly those who are both Black and female. As Hall tweeted, “Always looking for more MS artists, so pls shoot to @pvalleywriters.” Being introduced to Mississippi’s black female artists & producers has ESP looking forward to it.
As a last possibility, the coronavirus itself might play some role in Season 2. TV Guide quoted Hall as saying that there’s “a tale to tell about how Black folks are afflicted by this cancer… how they found out what to [do to] live.”
In her interview with EW, she provided further information, stating, “To see Uncle Clifford dressed in a rhinestone mask and lacy gloves is going to be one of the most memorable moments of this season’s show. I’m looking forward to meeting her.”
In addition, Deadline reports that viewers will learn how The Pynk, in particular, is able to withstand the epidemic. According to Hall’s tease, “the events of Season 2 will take place five months after Season 1 concluded.”

P-Valley Season 2: Cast
Elarica Johnson, Brandee Evans, Harriett D. Foy, and Skyler Joy, who will reprise their roles as Autumn Night, Mercedes, Pastor Woodbine, and Gidget, respectively, will be back for the upcoming season.
Some of the cast members made their Season 2 return in July 2021 known ahead of time, while others announced it later that month. This time around, they will be joined by Parker Sawyers (Andre), Lil’ Murda (Corbin), Dan J. Johnson (Diamond), and J. Alphonse Nicholson (J. Alphonse).
Two more female performers have been added to The Pynk, according to Deadline: Whisper (Psalms Salazar) and Roulette (Julianne Moore) (Gail Bean). “Spooky” in the words of Salazar’s Whisper, who “speaks in riddles and frightening truths,” while “wild” in the words of Roulette, who defies all of Uncle Clifford’s regulations.
Bean previously told Bustle, “My character in P-Valley is another character that I believe I’m a voice for wonderful Black women that some people don’t consider as persons. Humanity has been added to the dancer and stripper, I believe. “
Roulette is “unlike any character that you’ve seen in P-Valley or on television,” Snowfall’s Snowfall actor noted.
According to a Feb. 14 Deadline story, some of the show’s former recurring cast members have been promoted to series regulars.
Season two will see return appearances for Empire’s Morocco Omari and Dominic DeVore, as well as The Ride’s Jordan M. Cox, all of whom are expected to have more significant story arcs this year.
John Clarence Stewart, a cast member of Luke Cage and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, has been cast as Big Teak, a former member of Lil’ Murda’s gang who was just released from prison. As a “brilliant artist in an unorthodox marriage with Coach, Mercedes’ top customer,” Shamika Cotton joins the cast as Farrah.
This “unlikely bond” between Farrah and Mercedes appears to be inevitable. “Fighter and biter with sky-high goals” who has a “tongue more deadly than a Draco” are just some of the adjectives used to describe Big Bone, a new The Pynk member.
A cameo appearance on the program was something Cardi B has previously shown an interest in. There is always a place for you at the Pink!! #checkyodms was the hashtag added by Hall in his response.
In the meanwhile, there’s no word as of April 2022 on whether or not the “WAP” rapper would present at the event.
P-Valley Season 2: Premiere Date
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.” When a casting call was announced in March 2021, it was evident that P-Valley would not be returning until late 2021 or early 2022, taking post-production into consideration.
On April 12th, Starz confirmed that the show would return on June 3rd, 2022. There is a lot of fighting in this season’s teaser, as well as some COVID-related business issues, which premiered on May 11.
