Is Shannon Thornton leaving P-Valley, Keyshawn after finale?

P-Valley season 2

Is Shannon Thornton leaving P-Valleyand her role of Keyshawn, following the season 2 finale? Entering this episode, there were plenty of reasons for concern.

After all, consider the decisions that the character already made at the end of last week! She made it very much clear that she was ready to leave The Pynk, and for a very understandable reason: She needs to escape Derrick. She’s gone through so much horrible stuff and if she sees an opportunity to get away, it makes sense for her to take it. We want her to be happy, but of course we’d like to see that happen in a way that also keeps her on the show. Can someone just take Derrick away to where we never see him again?

We should note that entering the finale, there is no indication that Thornton is for sure leaving the show. (Technically, there’s also not an official renewal yet for season 3.) It’s one of those situations where the story could dictate the character’s path. Episode 9 ended with a “to be continued” for a reason, as there is so much more of this story to tell.

Warning: Spoilers from the finale within…

What happened to Keyshawn?

Well, the news was bad — really bad. Derrick set her up and found aw ay to ensure that Child Services would be there to investigate her. Basically, he was trying to force her to be around or she would not be able to see her child.

When this happened, she snapped — she was understandably enraged and it led to her lunging at one of the officers and being arrested. This means, at least to us, that she is still going to be around in season 3 if we get one, but in a really different capacity than what we saw before. Let’s just hope that there’s a way for her to get out of this, since this is devastating.
