Starz, the premium cable network known for 50 Cent’s Power series and its spin-offs, has renewed their hit show P-Valley for a third season.
The news of this renewal comes just two months after the end of the ten episode run of the show’s second season. This sophomore season like the first, also garnered critical acclaim and enjoyed a massive bump in viewership. According to Starz, the Katori Hall show averaged nearly 10.3 million viewers per episode when combining domestic linear, VOD and streaming. Approximately, this is an impressive 23 percent from its eight-episode order of the first season, making P-Valley the most watched U.S. series on Starz.
P-Valley is created and executively produced by Pulitzer-winning playwright Katori Hall via her deal with Lionsgate(which is backing Starz) and through the show’s success, has made her a showrunner to watch for. Hall speaking on the show’s acceptance and success, said “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 onscreen, 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.”
There is not yet a set time for the return of the third season but according to the show’s social media account, we can expect to see them sometime in 2024.
