“With ‘P-Valley,’ there are so many stories to tell, and every season we vary the story,” Hall added. “In addition to the sense of darkness descending into Chucalissa, each and every individual is haunted – plagued by their faults, haunted by their past.” And I believe we’ll all see how an actual and symbolic haunting occurs both within and outside the Pynk”.
