P-Valley will likely be renewed for seasons 3 and 4
Starz’ hit drama series P Valley possibly return for two more seasons. Created by Katori Hall, the series is set in Chucalissa, Mississippi. The show follows the close-knit group of women who work as exotic dancers at the city’s strip club, The Pynk. The club is owned by Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan), a no-nonsense business owner who has done whatever it takes to keep the club afloat despite financial troubles and quarantine.
Season 2 of P Valley, gave fans more insight into Autumn (Elarica Johnson), veteran dancer Mercedes (Brandee Evans), Keyshawn, aka Ms. Mississippi (Shannon Thornton), and Lil Murda (J. Alphonse Nicholson). Starz has not yet renewed the series, but it is likely that it will be renewed for seasons 3 and 4.

“P-Valley” is based on truth
While centered around sex workers and a strip club, the series has resonated with fans from all walks of life. Hall insists the show focuses on humanity and truthfulness.
“As strippers and people in the stripping industry — which is based on intimacy and gathering — our characters must find a way to survive in a moment where gatherings have ceased,” Hall told Indiewire. “For us, it was just a very universal experience of how everyone and their mom had to deal with their dreams, their livelihoods, ending. We use fiction to tell a very important truth that I think will resonate with our fanbase and also with newer viewers who come to the show.”
The show will likely be renewed for seasons 3 and 4
Since P Valley Having wrapped up its second season in mid-August 2022, fans have been waiting with bated breath for Starz to continue the acclaimed series. Last season showed Uncle Clifford and the girls at The Pynk staying healthy with the coronavirus (COVID-19), physical abuse and everything in between. We also learned a lot more about the characters in flashback sequences. However, despite the show’s massive following and praise, Starz has remained silent about renewing the series.
LoveBScott.com reports that the show will be renewed for a third and fourth season. They report that the delay was due to Hall’s dissatisfaction with the network, including several behind-the-scenes issues. They also report that Hall felt the show wasn’t treated as well as some of the other series on the platform, including The perfomance universe and strangerdespite the reviews and critical acclaim.
However, if the series returns for at least two seasons, hopefully things will work out seamlessly between Hall and Starz. The official announcement will hopefully be made in the coming days.
Elarica Johnson will not be returning as Autumn Knight in P-Valley
Even if we get at least two more seasons P Valley, Elarica Johnson, who played Autumn Knight aka Hailey, will not be returning to the show. She dropped out at the end of season two after plans for the Chucalissa casino fell through, and she officially fell out with Uncle Clifford.
Johnson has said it was her decision to leave the show. “Actually, I knew when it was going to happen because it was my choice,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “That’s something I spoke to [show creator] Katori [Hall]. Looking at this season’s scripts and the characters’ journeys and the journey of the Pynk, Autumn’s journey feels like it’s coming to an end. She did what she had to do and it was time for her to move on
