Minx has been cancelled at HBO Max despite being renewed for a second season. The news about its cancellation comes right after the makers wrap production on their second season. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television who are planning to shop the series to other networks after HBO Max removes the first season from their site.
Set in the 1970s, Minx follows a young feminist woman who joins forces with an independent publisher to create the first-ever erotic magazine for women. The series is created by Ellen Rapoport who is best known for co-writing the 2021 film Clifford the Big Red Dog.
Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson play the lead roles in the series while the rest of the cast includes Taylor Zakhar Perez, Jessica Lowe, Idara Victor, Michael Angarano, Lennon Parham, Oscar Montoya, and Gillian Jacobs.
The official statement released by Lionsgate Television says, “We have enjoyed a good partnership with HBO Max and are working closely to find a new opportunity for ‘Minx,’ so current, and new viewers, can continue this journey with us”
