P-Valley boss reacts to character exit in season 2 finale

The P valley Season 2 finale spoilers follow.

The P valley just finished its second season with an episode packed with drama, both good and bad.

Mercedes got a new studio and her daughter back, Clifford celebrated his relationship with Lil Murda and managed to avoid selling The Pynk thanks to Corbin’s help. On the flip side, Miss Mississippi ended up in jail thanks to the machinations of her abusive husband, while Autumn Night ran off with a load of The Pynk’s money after her affair with Andre was revealed.

Creator Katori Hall, who directed the finale, broke down the episode in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Speaking of Fall specifically, Hall said this will likely be the last we’ll see of her.

“It’s so clear that the strip club is a revolving door,” she said. “For Autumn Hailey Lakeisha Savage, The Pynk has been a place where she has dealt with a lot of trauma, made friends and lost friends. She was a woman who came into the wind and she left with the wind.

“She saved The Pynk, she did something that Uncle Clifford couldn’t at the time. She changed The Pynk, but she was changed by The Pynk and her relationship with Mercedes [because] she was able, for the first time in her life, to feel like a sister… The fact that she’s leaving with not one, but maybe two babies in her belly is a sign of hope.”

Elarica Johnson, who plays Autumn, said it was her choice to leave the show, following discussions with Hall.

“Looking at the scripts this season, and the journey of the characters and where The Pynk was going, this fall’s journey felt like it was coming to an end,” she added. “She’s done what she needed to do and it was time for her to move on.”

Elsewhere, Hall talked about how The Pynk has been a stepping stone for Mercedes, who will be entering a completely different chapter in her life.

“It’s time for her to start dreaming new dreams and that’s what I’m most excited about for Mercedes’ future, for her to really stand her ground and not be ashamed of her talent as a dancer,” she explained .

“She initially wanted to turn that gym into a majorette studio, but to see her swing and embrace the idea of ​​a pole fitness [studio]… It sends a very powerful message that [this] is a woman who has entered a space of self-worth.

“The last scene where we see a reset that happens between [Mercedes and her mother] teasing what might be in these two characters’ futures.”

A third season hasn’t been confirmed yet, but Brandee Evans and Nicco Annan have both said they’re very much up for it.

The P valley is available to stream on STARZPLAY in the UK and Starz in the US.
