According to The Pynk's creator, Katori Hall, the doors may be reopened for a "Mississippi minute," but the P-Valley third season is on the way. Fans are eager to see what will happen with this family when we return to Chucalissa.
On Saturday (Feb. 25), VIBE had to go to the 2023 NAACP Image Awards to see what they could offer about the upcoming season of the popular series.
"We're going to pick up where we left off. [Hall] keeps things under wraps." "I'm sure we'll be picking up where we left off." Thornton said. "It's going to be exciting and it'll have all of the amazing things that you'll want to see to take it to the next level."
Bean, a newcomer to the series, said jokingly, "More Roulette." I mean...but seriously, I'm looking forward to doing something similar to what we did last year, but just to tell more authentic work. To make sure that we continue to present multidimensional black characters on TV, to make sure we continue to present stories that are often smothered by money or that aren't funded. I'm excited to introduce the world to the South."
Evans said, "I don't know yet. Mercedes had her last dance," but I'm hoping you'll hear more of Mercedes being a mother and seeing more of what she does outside the club.
During the televised ceremony, P-Valley and Loretta Divine won non-televised awards for outstanding drama series and outstanding supporting actor in a drama series. Nicco Annan, who plays Uncle Clifford, won his first NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
Annan commended everyone who did not have space to express themselves during his acceptance speech. Hall dedicated the series' victory to "my Pynk Posse, the blue black boy who dances in his difference in the delta, the girls who crash through the ceiling and make falling into it feel like flight," and "our Lionsgate and STARZ "framily," who gave us our one and only yes."
Before the televised event, Thornton spoke on P-Valley's potential.
“You have never seen sex workers in this light before. You’ve never seen a non-binary man portrayed in this way.”
