Autumn Night left Chucalissa for good with a baby on board, a designer purse, and a trash bag full of The Pynk’s money! On the heels of the “P-Valley“ Season 2 finale, actress Elarica Johnson has announced her departure from the hit Starz series.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the British actress shared it was her decision to leave the wildly popular series after two seasons.
“It’s something I discussed with Katori [Hall]. Looking at the scripts this season, the journeys of the characters, and where the Pynk was going, Autumn’s journey felt like it was coming to an end. She has done what she needed to do and it was time for her to move on.”
When asked what mark did Autumn Night leave on Chucalissa, Elarica Johnson said:
A huge mark and there’s going to be a big space moving on. She was a big personality and was the keyhole into Chucalissa and the Pynk for the audience.
They met these characters through the eyes of Autumn early on and now that everyone’s acquainted, it’s time for her to leave.
Even within her broken relationships, they came from a really nice place. Uncle Clifford will miss the daily arguments with Autumn, but also getting to understand who she was and seeing the softer part of her.
The same goes for Mercedes. They learned a lot from each other. The note she leaves on isn’t the best, but she definitely leaves a history with the Pynk and made a big difference on how things will move forward.
She’s very grateful for the experience because it’s made her stronger and this was always going to be her journey.
She was always going to find a place to get back on her feet then move on to create a better life for herself.
She made that promise to her daughter, but I think she got more than she bargained for in a good way.
So, what’s next for Elarica Johnson after “P Valley?”
She’s set to star as Janis Gaye, singer, and ex-wife of musical legend, Marvin Gaye, in the forthcoming film, Sexual Healing.
