Starz Renews 'P-Valley' for Season 2

Starz has renewed its original drama series P-Valley for a second season, it was announced today. The second season will feature 10 episodes, up from eight for its first season.

The drama stars Brandee Evans, Nicco Annan, Shannon Thornton, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Skyler Joy, Parker Sawyers, Elarica Johnson, Harriett D. Foy, Tyler Lepley and Dan J. Johnson.

Katori Hall created the drama. She executive produces with Peter Chernin and Dante Di Loreto. Chernin Entertainment and Kat Buggy Productions produce.

"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 Christina Davis, Head of Originals, Starz. "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."

"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," added Hall. "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."
