TARZ announced today at Winter TCA 2022 that Psalms Salazar (Girl Lost: A Hollywood Thriller) and Gail Bean (Snowfall, Paradise Lost) will join the cast of the network’s breakout hit P-Valley for its sophomore season. Creator and Showrunner Katori Hall discussed the upcoming season while series regular Nicco Annan gave an exclusive behind-the-scenes set visit through The Pynk as a part of STARZ’s virtual Winter TCA session, which also featured commentary from P-Valley creator and showrunner Katori Hall with vignettes from cast members Elarica Johnson, Brandee Evans, Shannon Thornton, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Harriett D. Foy, and Morocco Omari.
Psalms Salazar joins as series regular Whisper, an enigmatic free spirit with a spooky streak who speaks in riddles and eerie truths. She’s blessed with a direct line to the universe and sight beyond the earthly realm. The air to Roulette’s fire, Whisper becomes a full-blown tornado when she hits the pole.
Gail Bean stars as recurring character Roulette, a feisty wild child who truly lives up to her name—she’s taking major risks and breaking all of Uncle Clifford’s rules. Like fire, she’s dangerous, unpredictable, and uncontrollable—but dazzling to watch. On and off the pole, she’s turning The Pynk upside down.
Returning cast includes: Nicco Annan as Uncle Clifford, Elarica Johnson as Autumn Night, Brandee Evans as Mercedes, Shannon Thornton as Miss Mississippi, J. Alphonse Nicholson as Lil’ Murda, Parker Sawyers as Andre, Harriett D. Foy as Pastor Woodbine, Dan J. Johnson as Corbin, Tyler Lepley as Diamond and Skyler Joy as Gidget.
Based on her play “Pussy Valley,” creator Katori Hall (The Mountaintop, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Dante Di Loreto also serves as an executive producer on the series. Lionsgate Television produces P-Valley for STARZ.
A premiere date has not yet been announced.
