‘P-Valley’ Season 2 Release Date Confirmed

It’s been nearly a year since P-Valley was last on Starz, with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic causing the series to be delayed. But new episodes are coming.

Production on P-Valley Season 2 began earlier in 2021, with filming now underway in Atlanta. Although it still seems to be in the early stages, we at least have an idea of when to expect it. A new teaser for P-Valley Season 2 confirms it’ll be out sometime in 2022.

‘P-Valley’ fans have questions that need answering

The first season of P-Valley concluded with the apparent death of Montavius. He was seemingly killed in a fight with Mercedes and Autumn after violently confronting Autumn about his missing money. It’s unclear who pulled the trigger, but show creator Katori Hall told Entertainment Weekly that “the secret of what went down in the Paradise Room will bond Uncle Clifford, Mercedes, and Hailey forever.”

“There is a pact that was made in that room,” she explained to Thrillist. “Something happened in that room, a gun went off. We know who probably died, but we do not know who picked up that gun and shot the fatal shot.”

Hall continued, “As we develop these characters even more, I think time will reveal what truly happened in the Paradise Room, but there’s so many levels to what happened and what the cover up is, and who has been a part of the cover up. I’m just really excited to see how people react. Because that’s going to be the big question: Who shot Montavius? Is Montavius dead?”

But there are also other questions, such as whether Mercedes will get her daughter back.

‘P-Valley’ Season 2 will be even ‘grimier’ than before

Hall previously said the second season of P-Valley would likely air in 2022, but now we know for certain. A new teaser released on Friday, Aug. 20 confirms the show will be back that year, though an exact release date is not yet known.

The clip also featured interviews from some of the P-Valley cast, including Elarica Johnson (Autumn Night), Brandee Evans (Mercedes), Nicco Annan (Uncle Clifford), Shannon Thornton (Keyshawn), J. Alphonse Nicholson (Lil’ Murda), and Parker Sawyers (Andre Watkins).

“In Season 2, I think this season has a different feel,” Nicholson shared. “There are new stages, there are new sets that we haven’t yet explored,” Thornton teased. “Expect to see more things happening outside the club,” Evans noted. “Expect things to get deeper, grimier, darker… there’s a lot to sink your teeth into.”

And it’ll be ‘worth the wait’

Although 2022 is still pretty far away, Evans promises the show will be worth the wait.

“I can tell you that it’s going to be well worth the wait, and a lot of your questions will be answered,” she told BlackFilmandTV.com in a joint interview with Annan. “And so it’s a bigger rollercoaster ride to me. To me, it’s more emotional, it’s even more real, and I didn’t even think that was possible. But just very much more relatable and real.”

“I’m just thinking about some things, even from your character Nicco, that they’re going to see this season,” she said to Annan. “It’s just going to be beautiful. Y’all, it is worth the wait, I’m telling you.”
