After such a long wait and much anticipation, the second season of P-Valley is finally here. Based on the play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Katori Hall, the show is set in the fictional town of Chucalissa, Mississippi. It follows Uncle Clifford (Nicco Annan), the owner of the town’s popular strip club, The Pynk, and the women who work for it.

There’s Mercedes (Brandee Evans), the club’s headliner who dreams of her last dance and embarks on a new chapter in her life. Autumn (Elarica Johnson), is a mysterious woman with a dark secret, and Keyshawn aka Mrs. Mississippi (Shannon Thornton) whose personal and professional life is doomed to implosion. As Season 2 finally arrives, here are some big themes that will be explored.

These themes will be central to Season 2.

Murda Night, which happened in the Season 1 finale, was shocking and exposed a lot of truths about some of our favorite characters on P-Valley. Now, new themes will be front and center in Season 2. BET reports that the new season will unpack, “physical and emotional abuse, issues of trust and abandonment, and the debilitating issue of police brutality against blacks in America”.

Additionally, 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.

P-Valley is more than just a series about beautiful women.

There Will Be A Major Time Jump In “P-Valley” Season 2

Along with a new cast and crew, there will also be a major time jump between the first and second seasons. “Season 2 takes place five months after the Season 1 finale,” Hall said in behind-the-scenes video from Starz. The pandemic has turned things upside down. Between the casino and COVID, they have a lot to deal with.

We know that Autumn saved The Pynk from an auction with the money she stole from her ex-husband. However, we’re not sure that’ll be enough to keep The Pynk afloat amid the pandemic.
