HBO Max canceled Minx Season 2, reversing its decision to give the show a second season renewal in May. But despite the cancellation, the people behind the show refuse to give up, looking for a streaming service to save it and pick it up.
Minx Season 2’s production has been in the works for some time now, so canning it will be a big waste. So, instead of wallowing in sadness, its star, creator, and producer are trying to find a way to continue the show—hopefully on a streaming website.
Jake Johnson Wants Minx Season 2 to Continue
HBO Max surprised everyone when it announced the cancellation of the comedy series, which saw the 1970s era when the world’s first pornographic magazine for women was being created.
After the news broke, Jake Johnson, who plays the role of the magazine publisher Doug, announced that the series would continue its production and find a new streaming service to air the show in a post on Instagram.
With the fans’ clamor after HBO Max cancelled the show, resulting in widespread criticism, it may have incited Johnson and the rest of the series’ staff and crew to continue it.
“We’ve been removed from HBOMax, but we’re still finishing the season. So thankfully, they didn’t halt production. We’re about a week away from being finished shooting,” he wrote.
“From what I am hearing S1 & S2 (and hopefully S3) will find a new home, the question is where. The crew really killed it this season. @blakemcclure crushed as DP,” he continued. “The set design/wardrobe/everything. It was truly impressive & worth watching. I am eager to find a new platform for these episodes.”
He thanked fans for their online support, assuring them they love making Minx and hoping to continue.
“It’s a crazy business & that’s partly what’s so addictive about it,” he added. “So hopefully, we have good news to share soon.”
Producer, Creator Now on a Hunt for a New Home
Meanwhile, producer Lionsgate Television revealed it would be looking for a new home for Minx Season 2.
"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," the company said in a statement via Entertainment Weekly.
Alternatively, series creator Ellen Rapoport said the same in a post on Twitter.
"I am obviously disappointed that Minx (along with several other shows yet to be announced) is leaving HBO Max,” she posted. “I'm proud of the show we've made and am confident that the audience will come with us to our new home. Thank you to the best cast and crew in the business."
Sadly, HBO Max will also reportedly remove the show’s first season from its catalog.
