STARZ has released nine new Shining Vale posters to promote the upcoming season season of its horror comedy series. The hit series will return on the frightfully-appropriate Friday, October 13th.
“The fun of ‘Shining Vale’ is creating a world that exists at the nexus of character-based comedy and psychological horror. Our goal was to never slip into spoof, but rather to have our characters, and hopefully our audience, experience true terror, but in a very funny way,” said Jeff Astrof, co-creator and executive producer.

Season one of Shining Vale introduced Pat and Terry Phelps, a dysfunctional family that tried to run from their problems by moving their kids into a Victorian mansion in small-town Connecticut. The only problem? It may be haunted.
Once settled in, Pat encountered Rosemary, a demon who possessed her body and turned her life upside down. When the family steps in to “save” Pat, they commit her to a psychiatric hospital where she sees an old photo of a nurse who looks just like her demon Rosemary.
The second season kicks off four months later, when Pat’s insurance runs out and she is released from the psychiatric hospital early. Pat returns home, determined to pick up the pieces of her broken family, but she quickly finds out her children don’t need her, Terry doesn’t remember her and to make matters worse, Pat’s new neighbor Ruth looks exactly like Rosemary.
Meanwhile, the house starts to reveal the shocking secrets of its dark past. Every mother feels like they live in an insane asylum, but Pat may be right!
