Down in the valley where the girls get naked… Starz has finally renewed its critically acclaimed award-winning drama series, “P-Valley,” for Season 3!
The renewal comes over two months after the jaw-dropping Season 2 finale.
The delay in renewing the series is baffling considering the fact that 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 Hall On The Season 3 Renewal
Katori Hall, creator, showrunner, and executive producer of “P-Valley” shared her excitement and gratitude about the Season 3 renewal in the following statement:
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 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.
“P-Valley” is an hour-long drama that tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors – the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned.
Set against the rural Mississippi Delta in the fictional town of Chucalissa, the Pynk is an oasis in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find at the crossroads of grit and glitter.
A story of survival, chosen family, soulmates, politics, love, and death, “P-Valley” is where trap music meets film noir and dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of their limited circumstances.
In Season 2, “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.
It took audiences deeper into the lives of the Pynk’s beloved characters as darkness descended upon Chucalissa.

Following the Season 2 finale, Elarica Johnson announced her departure from the show.
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 Does ‘P-Valley’ Season 3 Come On?
Well, Katori said it’s going to be a “Mississippi minute” before the show returns, but Starz has confirmed that “P-Valley” Season 3 will give viewers 10 juicy episodes to sink our teeth into!
Y’all we gotta get prepared for the re-re-re-re-re-opening of The Pynk!
