We’re headed back to Shining Vale! The horror comedy officially got the green light for season 2 from Starz today.

In season one of Shining Vale, Pat (Courteney Cox) and Terry Phelps (Greg Kinnear) cash in their life savings and move from a cramped Brooklyn apartment to an old Victorian mansion in Connecticut with their teenage kids. But this brand new start gets complicated when Pat starts to believe their new home is haunted.

Shining Vale is both wickedly funny and a beautiful three-dimensional portrayal of marriage, adolescent parenting and motherhood,” said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming at Starz. “We’re thrilled to bring viewers another season of this mic dropping blend of horror and comedy.”

The series comes from co-creators, showrunners, and executive producers Jeff Astrof and Sharon Horgan.

“Sharon and I are thrilled to be able to tell the next eight chapters of the Phelps’ story – especially after the way we ended season one,” Astrof teased. “Personally, I look forward to the crushing pressure of trying to raise the bar even further in season two. But we can do anything. After all, ‘We Are Phelps!’” 

In addition to Cox and Kinnear, the series stars Mira Sorvino, Gus Birney, Merrin Dungey, and Dylan Gage. 

Starz announced an eight-episode second season for Shining Vale. You can stream all of season 1 on the Starz app now.

About Shining Vale

In season one of “Shining Vale,” Pat (Cox) and Terry Phelps (Kinnear) cash in their life savings and move from a cramped Brooklyn apartment to an old Victorian mansion in Connecticut, as a last-ditch effort to save their marriage after Pat’s torrid affair with the handyman. Gaynor and Jake are pissed, and as disconnected as teenagers can get. Terry tries to rally the family, but the pushback is relentless. Pat is losing her grip on the kids, and Terry doesn’t see Pat might be losing a grip on herself as well.

Buying a giant 200-year-old house for $250K below asking may have seemed like a great deal on paper, but Pat senses that something is off. Doors slam, the piano plays by itself and when an old-fashioned-looking woman appears to hover outside the family window, Pat believes that she is going crazy—or worse. Every family has its demons, but for the Phelps, theirs may be real.
