According to Essence magazine, the Season 2 premiere reached 4.5 Million multiplatform viewers over the course of its premiere weekend – a 1,018% increase from its first season – making this the largest season-over-season growth in STARZ history.
Katori took to social media to express her gratitude to the Pynk Posse writing:
Our Pynk Posse showed up and showed out!
The incredible response to season two feels like such a gift after the challenging pause of these past few years, but we’re back and we’re just getting started y’all.
I am bursting with pride seeing the Pynk Posse grow and watching the sense of community and family that forms as we bring this new season to the world.
Hearing from viewers that they have felt seen, heard, and celebrated is exactly what everyone working on the show hoped for.
Being able to showcase our community’s resilience has been so meaningful and rewarding, and I can’t wait for y’all to come on down to the valley to see the rest of what we have in store. @pvalleystarz #PValley

“P-Valley” continues to thrive despite Nicci Gilbert‘s public criticism of the series and her copyright infringement lawsuit against Starz, Lionsgate, Katori Hall, and others.
Gilbert claims the series is a rip-off of her stage play, “Soul Kittens Cabaret.”
Congrats to the Pynk Posse.
