P-Valley fans rejoice, for the hit TV show has been renewed a third time. 

Creator Katori Hall and the cast are heading back to Chucalissa for an additional 10 episodes of the critically acclaimed stripper-based series on Starz.

Reigning as the network’s biggest show in the U.S., P-Valley season 2 currently averages 10.3 million viewers when combining linear, streaming and video on demand — an increase of 23% over the show’s premiere season. 

“‘P-Valley’ continues to keep viewers on the edge of their seats as it captures the nuances of the Mississippi Delta with an unprecedented level of humanity and artistry,” Kathryn Busby, president of original programming at Starz, said. “This layered drama gets beyond the glitz through authentic and complex characters that have captured the hearts of critics and audiences alike. We cannot wait to see what Katori has in store for us in season three.”  

The hourlong Starz drama is based on the play Pussy Valley, written by Hall. It centers around a “little-strip-club-that-could” in the fictional town of Chucalissa, Mississippi, and the larger-than-life characters that come through its doors. 

“I am blessed beyond measure for this opportunity to write the next chapter of ‘P-Valley,'” Hall said. “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 on screen, and it brings me immense joy to know that it has been embraced by folx worldwide.”

Season 2 of P-Valley stars Nicco AnnanBrandee EvansShannon ThorntonJ. Alphonse Nicholson and Elarica Johnson, although Johnson recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly she will not be returning to the show.

Starz has yet to announce a premiere date for season 3.
