Shining Vale Season 2 Gets Trailer From STARZ

Get a taste of what's in store with the new season of the STARZ series.

The creepy and hilarious STARZ series Shining Vale is returning for a Season 2 next month, with the network releasing a first trailer for the upcoming episodes. The debut season was a standout experience in 2022 for a number of reasons, from its ambitious blend of horror, comedy, drama, and romance to the delightful ensemble cast it brought together, with this first trailer for the upcoming season hinting that fans will be getting even more of what they loved about Season 1. Additionally, the events of Season 1 set a unique premise for how Season 2 will be kicking off, allowing for even more thrilling antics to be explored. Check out the trailer for Season 2 of Shining Vale below before it premieres on STARZ on October 13th.

The hysterical, spine-chilling trailer teases the repercussions following last season's nail-biting cliffhanger when Pat (Courteney Cox) landed herself in a psychiatric hospital for trying to murder her family with an ax. Pat (Cox) went through extensive Electroshock Therapy, and when she returns home she meets a mysterious woman who introduces her to a host of ancient remedies used to "cure" women of depression, including the apocryphal Smile Masks. Season 2 explores what's in store for the Phelps family as they continue to be haunted by ghosts while Pat struggles to live with mental illness among a broken family, battling demons both internally...and externally.
