The COVID-19 pandemic helped usher in a whole new Pynk on P-Valley.

As you can see from a just-released trailer for the second season of the Starz drama (below), which premieres on June 3 at 9 p.m., the show is not shying away from real-world events, writing the pandemic into the storyline. At first, the club struggles to stay afloat under lockdown orders, but once that order is lifted, business needs to reset a bit. The Mississippi club will audition new dancers, as well as face a power struggle among those who want to be in charge.

"There ain't no use being the richest in the graveyard," the trailer warns.

P-Valley comes from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Katori Hall and stars 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, Morocco Omari as Big L, Dominic DeVore as Duffy, Tyler Lepley as Diamond, Jordan M. Cox as Derrick, and Skyler Joy as Gidget. Season 2 also welcomes John Clarence Stewart as Big Teak, Miracle Watts as Big Bone, Shamika Cotton as Farrah, Gail Bean as Roulette, and Psalms Salazar as Whisper.

Hall serves as showrunner and executive produces alongside Dante Di Loreto. Lionsgate Television produces.

The first season was designated a "Metacritic Must-Watch" after earning an 85 Metascore. The review embargo on Season 2 has not yet lifted.
