If you read my review of Minx then you know I’m OBSESSED with this series! So, the news of a Season 2 renewal has me doing my happy dance in my kitchen.
Minx takes place in the 70s and tells the story of a woman named Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond) who has a dream. She wants to start and publish the first-ever feminist magazine. Yet, the men who run the industry have zero interest, except one – Doug (Jake Johnson). Doug owns his own successful publishing house and think’s Joyce’s idea is great. However, Doug’s publishing house specializes in porn magazines. So, he wants to take Joyce’s idea and “hide the medicine’ first-ever all-nude men’s magazine for women.
While renewals can be surprising, for me, if HBOMax didn’t renew Minx it would’ve been a huge mistake. And it seems the creative team behind the series agrees.
“All of us at Minx have been blown away by the passionate response from audiences across the world, who have mashed-up, TikTok-ed, and fanfic-ed us into a renewal. We are so grateful to our partners at HBO Max and Lionsgate for being true champions of the show, and for the opportunity to continue on this journey. Here’s to more chest hair, pussy bow blouses, and tasteful nudes in Season 2.”Ellen Rapoport, executive producer
“We are thrilled that the world of MINX has resonated in the way that it has. Showrunner and creator Ellen Rapoport, alongside the rest of our gifted creative team, masterfully deliver nuanced humor, with the cast executing her vision seamlessly. We can’t wait for fans to see what medicine Doug and Joyce hide in peanut butter for season two!”Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max
“Size does matter and we are excited to have our partners at a huge platform like HBO Max extend MINX for a second season. The creative team led by Ellen Rapoport and the extraordinary cast have created a gem in season one, and we look forward to exposing the acclaimed show’s fans to more fun and incredibly original storytelling.”Scott Herbst, Head of Scripted Development and EVP, Lionsgate Television
