How beautiful is the boundless world of dancing! And when it’s a striptease, then images of beauties spinning on a pole immediately pop up in our head. The TV series will show 8 stories of strippers from a small bar in Mississippi. They are beautiful on stage, but their lives are so broken that it is simply impossible to glue them back together…
“P-Valley ss 2”: release date, announcement
The planning of the season 2 of the TV series “P-Valley” became known on July 27, 2020, 2 weeks after the premiere of the 1st one. Despite this, filming of new episodes began only in June 2021. The season will consist of 10 episodes. Their premiere is scheduled for June 3, 2022.
The producers managed to shoot season 1 before the coronavirus, and only some scenes were filmed already during the pandemic, but in compliance with all safety requirements. Whether the director will be able to stay on schedule when creating a new season or the pandemic will interfere again remained unknown until the last.
Deep down, Mercedes hates her job. But since it brings in a decent income, she does not seek to part with the pole. Being the “star” of any striptease program, the girl skillfully manipulates the wallets of the clients who have come, forcing them to give her every cent. But suddenly she tells her boss, Uncle Clifford, that she wants to leave striptease and do something more mature…
In fact, Mercedes could continue to striptease, but her mother is a religious woman. Each time she demands repentance from her daughter for showing her naked body to men. The only thing that can save Mercedes from pouring out her soul is the generous donations that her mother, without a twinge of conscience, takes from her own daughter.
Uncle Clifford is sorry for Mercedes, and for his other girls. He comes to everyone’s rescue, even if he looks strange at the same time – a huge man with false nails, makeup, in a wig. He is able to babysit his ward’s baby and get others to help him in this difficult matter; he is also able to take a girl off the street and give her a job without demanding anything in return…
Autumn Night came to participate in the competition, where she won. Uncle Clifford liked her immediately, but Mercedes, who was about to leave, did not approve of such a worthless replacement for herself. Autumn, however, did not care about the star of the bar – she just needed money, because at the moment a colossal tragedy was unfolding in her fate, connected with her child, whom she could lose.
There are other girls who didn’t deserve a similar fate. One of them is forced to go to work with a small child, because her husband beats her and kicks her out of the house. The guard has been in love with her for a long time, but she does not see this, and she takes the help offered from him in a friendly way. She has yet to find out what the father of her child is capable of.
It would seem – a good income, but the life of these girls is so difficult that not everyone would prefer to be in her place. Sick relationships, weak family ties, alcohol addictions and many other problems come along their way. But they are together. And when life prepares another surprise for them, the girls are ready to unite in the face of the problem.
Actors and their roles
- Mercedes – the star of the strip club, Clifford’s favorite; Mercedes has a very difficult character, everyone has to put up with it; but those close to her know how kind she is, hiding behind the mask of an egoist; prepared a farewell performance in the club where her mother came to watch her daughter make a living – Brandee Evans.
- Uncle Clifford – head of a strip club, takes his percentage from girls; helps them; constantly dresses like a woman; often has sexual relations with clients, preferring men; has debts on loans, although earns good money; a kind of “mom” for strippers, as he always gives a helping hand – Nicco Annan.
- Autumn Night – a new stripper who took the place of Mercedes; immediately disliked by the main star of the club, but was soon accepted by the others, including Clifford, who was never afraid of the anger of Mercedes; Autumn is experiencing a personal tragedy that she doesn’t want to tell anyone about; lives in a dusty room, on an old mattress and has nothing else – Elarica Johnson.
- There are 8 directors in the TV show. It is noteworthy that all of them are girls who in some way were associated with striptease and the cruelty that is happening in nightclubs behind closed doors. The women came together to show young girls the other side of easy money. It is not so easy to have physical training, the skill of dealing with lustful men and so on.
- Brandee Evans has worked with singer Katy Perry and popular rapper Snoop Dogg. She most often voices cartoons, but when the producers planned for the TV series “P-Valley”, Brandee was offered the lead role. Evans fit perfectly – her demeanor and dance caused loud applause after every successful take.
- Unlike Brandee, Elarica Johnson never danced and had a lot of problems filming her competition scenes. They had to make the show non-standard, and dilute the actress’s dance with flashbacks from the past, supposedly she recalls the life she lived before.
