It took long enough but P-Valley is FINALLY renewed for Season 3 at Starz and will have 10 episodes. The renewal for the series from creator/showrunner Katori Hall arrives more than two months after the sophomore season wrapped its run.
According to Starz, season two averaged nearly 10.3 million viewers per episode when combining domestic linear, VOD and streaming. That’s an impressive 23% increase from its eight-episode freshman order, making P-Valley the most-watched U.S. series on Starz.
“P-Valley continues to keep viewers on the edge of their seats as it captures the nuances of the Mississippi Delta with an unprecedented level of humanity and artistry,” said Kathryn Busby, president of original programming at Starz. “This layered drama gets beyond the glitz through authentic and complex characters that have captured the hearts of critics and audiences alike. We cannot wait to see what Katori has in store for us in season three.”
P-Valley was created by Pulitzer Prize winner Katori Hall, based on her play Pussy Valley. The show is set at The Pynk, a strip club in the Mississippi Delta, and follows the employees as they try to get by in the fictional town of Chucalissa.
As explained in our season 2 cast interview, P-Valley revealed a whole new Pynk as it struggled to remain open during a pandemic, a battle for the throne, and the possibility of some new blood shaking up the locker room.
“I am blessed beyond measure for this opportunity to write the next chapter of P-Valley,” Hall said. “With its complex, dynamic, and beautifully flawed characters, this show is a love letter to marginalized communities in the American South who rarely see themselves reflected on screen, and it brings me immense joy to know that it has been embraced by folx worldwide. We wouldn’t be getting back up on that pony, without our fiercely devoted Pynk Posse. Y’all are our fire. And special thanks to the fuel: everyone who laid hands on this show. From the writers and producers to the cast to the crew to the executives, this show is made with great love, grit and glitter. It’s gonna take us a Mississippi minute before we’re back on your screens again, but best believe it’ll be well worth the wait.”
