Our introduction to Pat (Courteney Cox) and the seemingly doomed Phelps clan was quite a ride, and it appears that a four-month stint at the Shining Vale Psychiatric Hospital – cut short by her insurance running out – complete with dozens of rounds of electroconvulsive therapy hasn't zapped her troubles away. Who'd have thought it?

Instead, they appear to have multiplied. Rosemary's (Mira Sorvino) presence is more pronounced than ever, and apparently so charming that Terry (Greg Kinnear), who can remember neither his kids' names nor the incident on the staircase, has welcomed her into the Phelps' accursed household with open arms, to the bewilderment of Pat. 

Gaynor (Gus Birney), meanwhile, is in no mood to apologise for having her mother carted off, having had to give up her dream of moving to LA in order to take care of Jake (Dylan Gage) and bind the family together.

If there's one potential happy consequence of Terry's memory loss, it's that the family has a chance to really start afresh this time. Though it's not quite that simple, and Pat's lingering sense of guilt, combined with the stigma stemming from her treatment, leads her to shoulder a far greater share of the burden than she really should in her fragmented state. 

And the thinner her attentions are stretched, the stranger and more terrifying the goings-on in the house. Here's how to watch Shining Vale season 2 online from anywhere now.

How to watch Shining Vale season 2 in the US on a cord cutting service

watch Shining Vale season 2 on Starz without cable TV

You can watch Shining Vale season 2 on Starz without cable TV by using an OTT cord cutting service. Most good ones will have Starz as an option, usually an add-on.

Philo looks to be the cheapest way to do that. It comes to $34 per month – that's $25 for the basic Philo deal plus a further $9 for the Starz add-on – and you get a 30-day free trial to get you going too.

Another good option is Sling, which offers Starz as a $9 per month add-on to one of its base packages, though you'll only pay $5 for your first month. With Sling's basic bundles starting at $30, you're looking at paying $39 month-to-month.

If you want a fuller, but considerably more expensive, cable replacement service that includes access to Starz, then take a look at FuboTV which offers over 100 cable channels with its Basic bundle that starts at $74.99. You'll need the $8.99 Starz add-on as well. If that sounds interesting, then take a look at the 7-day FREE FuboTV trial.

You can also get Starz through Amazon Prime Video, which is well worth considering as new subscribers can take advantage of the FREE 30-day Prime trial and a FREE 7-day Starz trial on top of that.

Whatever streaming service you choose, you can watch it wherever you are – all you need to do it is download a good VPN and follow our instructions below.
