HBO MAX Canceled Minx Despite Renewing for A Second Season!
Contrary to prior speculations, Minx won’t be back for HBO Max’s Season 2.
PerVariety, “According to reports, Warner Bros. Discovery chose to cancel the show in its latest cost-cutting measure just as production on its second season was about to wind up.”
The first season of Minx will likewise be taken from HBO Max, but the show’s creator, Lionsgate Television, intends to pitch the project to other platforms.
The comedy series Gordita Chronicles will also be withdrawn from the streaming service, according to Deadline, and this revelation follows similar ones made by HBO Max.
The showrunner of the Gordita Chronicles Brigitte Mu oz-Liebowitz tweeted the information and noted that the show ends on HBO Max on Monday, December 19.
The first and currently final season of Minx will no longer air on HBO Max, but TV Line has confirmed that Lionsgate Television is looking for a new home for the show.
In a statement, Lionsgate Television said, “We have enjoyed fantastic cooperation with HBO Max and are working closely to find a new outlet for Minx, so current, and new fans, may continue this adventure with us.
According to the HBO Max logline, Minx follows Joyce, “an earnest young feminist who joins up with a low-rent publisher to produce the first sensual magazine for women.” The show is set in 1970s Los Angeles.
HBO Max had previously renewed Minx for Season 2 in May before the most recent cancellation. The Season 1 (now Series) finale of the comedy made its online streaming premiere in April.
Executive producer Ellen Rapoport talked about her excitement to continue the series after such a positive response when Minx was renewed.
The emotional response from viewers all across the world, who have mashed-up, TikTok-ed, and fanfic-ed us into a renewal, has astounded everyone at Minx, Rapoport said.
“We are extremely appreciative of the opportunity to continue this journey and to our friends at HBO Max and Lionsgate for being great champions of the show. In Season 2, here’s to more chest hair, pussy bow blouses, and elegant nudity,” Rapoport said.
