Starz got one of his biggest series to date with the drama Valley-P, by award-winning writer Katori Hall. Set in the Mississippi Delta, the show revolves around those who work at a strip club named The Pynk, run by forward-thinking and forward-thinking boss Uncle Clifford. It premiered in the summer of 2020 with a lot of praise for its storylines, portrayal of dancers, and handling of serious issues. But to let Loretta Devine say it, the best is yet to come.
What has happened in ‘P-Valley’ so far
A lot happened in the first season of Valley-P, but nothing stands out more than the events of the finale. The Pynk was having a closing party when he was interrupted by ex-Montavius d’Automne. He had tracked her down to Mississippi to recover the money she had stolen from him.
He attacked her in a back room of the club. But he was overpowered and shot by someone offscreen. While we still don’t know what exactly happened to him, Hall told Entertainment Weekly that “what happened in the Paradise Room is going to bind Uncle Clifford, Mercedes and Hailey forever.”
In one of the final scenes, Autumn used Montavius’ money to prevent the club from being sold to Mayor Ruffin. This makes her the co-owner of The Pynk. Hall said he expects more drama between Autumn and Uncle Clifford now that Autumn wields this power.
“She came to get slammed ** on the dance floor and now she has some ownership in the club,” she explained. “The power dynamics at the club have completely changed and seeing Uncle Clifford and Hailey fight for the throne will be a legend.”
