The Starz hit drama series P-Valley has returned for a second season. The series follows Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan), the owner of the highly popular strip club, The Pynk. The club is a staple in the fictional town of Chucalissa, Mississippi. In the first season, Uncle Clifford worked to no avail to keep the doors to her club open. The series also followed the lives of her dancers. Headliner, Mercedes (Brandee Evans), was on the verge of retirement, Miss Mississippi (Shannon Thornton) was learning to stand on her own, and newcomer Autumn (Elarica Johnson), was hiding a dark secret.
Now in the second season, things have changed drastically for everyone. It even looks like Megan Thee Stallion has even gotten wind of The Pynk.

In addition to an appearance by Megan and some brand new characters, this season of P-Valley is set to focus on several central themes.
BET is reporting that the new season will unpack, “physical and emotional abuse, trust and abandonment issues, and the debilitating matter of police brutality against Black people in America.”
Moreover, there will be a very special episode highlighted this season. The episode will pay tribute to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and a host of unidentified victims in Michigan, Texas, and California.
