‘Minx’ Canceled at Hbo Max Despite Season 2 Renewal
“Minx” has been canceled at HBO Max, despite the fact that it was renewed for Season 2 in May.
The show was about to wrap production on its second season when Warner Bros. Discovery decided to cancel it in order to save money.
The first season will also be removed from HBO Max, with producer Lionsgate Television hoping to sell it to other outlets.
“We have had a good partnership with HBO Max and are working hard to find a new opportunity for ‘Minx,’ so that current and new viewers can continue on this journey with us,” Lionsgate said in a statement.
“Minx” takes place in 1970s Los Angeles. Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond) is the series’ protagonist, who is described as “an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Jake Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women.”
Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano, and Oscar Montoya also star. Season 1 of the series was well-received, with a 97% critical approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
