Deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of glitter amid violent human trajectories where beauty can be hard to find. Each episode traces the kaleidoscopic story of a tiny strip club where colorful characters walk through its doors, whether life-broken, hopeful, or utterly lost.
P-Valley elevates the stories of people often deemed unworthy — poor Black people, country folk, non-binary individuals, and of course strippers — to show their full humanity, resilience, and tenderness.”

What is the Cast Prediction?
It is expected that the first season of “P-Valley” will be back for the show’s second season. That would mean you’re likely to see Nicco Annan again reprise his role as part-club owner Uncle Clifford, Brandee Evans return as veteran stripper Mercedes. And Elarica Johnson portrays the newly minted part-owner of The Pynk Hailey/Autumn Night. Also returning for Season 2 are Shannon Thornton as Keyshawn, Miss Mississippi, Skyler Joy as Gidget, and J. Alphonse Nicholson as Lil’ Murda. We’re likely to see Parker Sawyers back as Andre, and Harriett D. Foy reprises her role as Mercedes’ mom Patricia. Meanwhile, given the casting call for dancers. There’s likely to be at least a few new cast members joining the show in Season 2. However, it’s too early to know who has joined the cast and in what capacity.
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.”
Hall continued, “As we develop these characters, even more, I think time will reveal what truly happened in the Paradise Room. But there are 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.
