STARZ's P Valley Renewed For Third Season
Fans of STARZ's P-Valley get to head "down to the valley" once more. It was announced today that "The Pynk" and all of its beloved characters would be returning for another season. Showrunner Katori Hall expressed her gratitude and excitement over the news in a post on social media while the cast echoed similar thoughts.
"I am blessed beyond measure for this opportunity to write the next chapter of ‘P-Valley.’ 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," said Hall. She continued, "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."
