Starz Comedy Shining Vale Returns in October; Celebrity Name That Tune Celebrities for Season 3

Shining Vale

STARZ announced that the horror comedy series Shining Vale, starring Emmy Award® nominee Courteney Cox (Friends, Cougar Town), Academy Award® nominee and Emmy Award® winner Greg Kinnear (As Good as It Gets, The Kennedys) and Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino (Hollywood, The Expecting), will return for season two on Friday, October 13, 2023. New first-look photos tease the return to Shining Vale where Pat (Cox) and Terry (Kinnear) Phelps struggle with reconnecting their broken family, mental illness, menopause, and trauma, as their Connecticut home continues to reveal more of its haunted past. In season two, the Phelps must battle their demons both internally... and externally. Something is lurking in the shadows in Shining Vale, and it's more than just Rosemary (Sorvino).

In addition to Cox, Kinnear and Sorvino, Shining Vale also stars Gus Birney (Dickinson), Merrin Dungey (Big Little Lies, The Resident), and Dylan Gage (PEN15), and features Emmy Award® nominees Judith Light (Poker Face), Allison Tolman (Emergence, Why Women Kill) and Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks).
