This show will return for a Minx Season 2. Although HBO Max initially announced in May 2022 that it would be renewing the show for a second season, it reversed that decision in December 2022 due to budget cuts (all this even though production for the new season was nearly complete).
Starz announced they had acquired the show and would be airing Season 2 a month later. “Minx” is a workplace comedy that takes place in Los Angeles during the 1970s sexual revolution and centers on a group of people who are tasked with producing and distributing an erotic magazine for women.
Ophelia Lovibond stars as the young feminist Joyce Prigger, editor-in-chief of the fictional magazine Minx, which draws inspiration from accurate publications. Her ex-boyfriend, Glenn (Michael Angarano), is less than ideal, and her publisher, Doug Renetti (Jake Johnson), tries to steer her in a different direction so that her book will sell.
Joyce faces her own biases and sexual inhibitions, the relationships she is developing at “Minx,” and the numerous influential people who are attempting to shut down the magazine. Now that production on the second season of “Minx” has resumed, here is a rundown of everything we know.

There’s A Cruel Sense Of Irony In HBO Max Cancelling ‘Minx’
It should be enough to get the series it promised the second season, what with answering the questions the series adeptly raised, seeing where those choices take the characters, and honoring the delicious work of these actors.
Beyond that, the show’s abrupt cancellation and the streamer’s decision to remove it entirely are a cruel reflection of the show’s central conflict: a woman struggling in a male-directed media landscape to stake a claim for herself, to ask the questions and raise the issues that are unique to her experience and that of others who don’t fit the dominant narrative.

Joyce and Minx tell these tales with bravery and attention to detail. Each makes us wonder what happens to our collective memory when new voices are pushed to the margins, the liberties and limits of middle-class feminism, the pleasure of desire, and the stories we love.
Like Joyce, Rapoport’s show was trying to find its identity in a crowded media landscape. This was true whether the medium was a print magazine in the 1970s or a streaming performance in the 2020s. The marginalized magazine producers of the show have as much of a right to be heard as the show’s creator, writer, and cast.
However, much like Minx, this tale may wrap up on an optimistic note. Since Season 2 is coming to a close, there is still a chance that another streaming service will pick the show up.
By the end of Season 1, Joyce had packed up her Minx and set out in search of a new home for her creation, one that would give her more creative control and a louder platform from which to share the stories, questions, and eye-popping spreads she had dreamed up. Hopefully, Rapoport will have the same luck as hers.
Who From The Original Cast Of Minx Will Be Back For Season Two?
Ophelia Lovibond and Jake, hair and all, will be back for Minx Season 2. Ideally, that would include (but not be limited to) Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano, and Oscar Montoya.
When Did Season 1 Of “Minx” End, And What Happened?
After the first season, the magazine is the target of protests, legal action, and a possible citywide pornography ban. At the same time that model Bambi announces her retirement, photographer Richie declines promotion to art director, and Doug’s business partner Tina is accepted to multiple universities, Doug hands over complete editorial control of the magazine to Joyce.
When Is The Second Season Of Minx Going To Premiere?
Having found a new home, all that remains is for them to finish editing and post-production so that it can return to the air. There has been no announcement of a release date.
In December of 2022, HBO Max decided to cancel the filming of their show “Minx,” even though production had not yet wrapped. Season two is still in production, so Starz has not announced when it will premiere, but it will likely be in 2023.
