The comedy's previous renewal is reversed.
December 12, 2022
It is being reported that HBO Max has cancelled Minx, reversing its original decision to renew the comedy for a second season earlier this year. The half-hour series premiered in March with a 10-episode run that garnered high praise from critics.
The move was unexpected, but not a complete surprise, as the streaming service has cancelled a number of its originals in recent days. Those other shows, however, were all unscripted fare. Today's move is likely related to an overall scaling back in original content since the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery earlier this year.
Set in 1970s Los Angeles, Minx follows an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women. The show's production company, Lionsgate Television, is said to be trying to find it a new home so that Season 2, which has already wrapped production, can see the light of day.

Another horrible cancelation. Please Netflix, save this show. It is just as fun as Dead To Me, and that is an excellent complement to both shows. HBOMAX still has Titans, but that is about it. P.S. They renewed the college girls show which does not hold a candle to Minx.

This show is fantastic. Great acting and story. HBO MAX promised us a place where every show in the HBO library could be viewed. From what I understand, HBO has new management that wants to change everything. They probably know that they can do whatever they want, but I do not want to pay for Friends or The Big Bang Theory. I sometimes think I should do the add/drop method many people do, which is to sign up for a month, watch everything on demand, then dump them again.

Do you want a bonafide answer? No. Your position, opinions, politics, TV, and everything is as firm as your nation, wherever it is. Only your gender is in question.

Hi. Can someone answer my question ? I'm not from USA but some shows are airing in my country on free channels or cable/streaming platforms. I was wondering why so many (like THOUSANDS) shows are cancelled since 2020. I know for free channels like ABC and others, it was the cost of production and the lost of viewers since Netflix, Disney and others appeared but why so many cable channels like HBO, Starz, Showtime and others are putting money into production and don't even give a chance to their shows. This year most of cancelled shows are after one season... At least it's better than watching 8 seasons and no season 9 for a proper ending, but come on ! And don't tell me everybody has the money to pay all streaming platforms and also have time to watch everything... We all know Netflix is already showing some bad symptoms after only 10 years of service. So what's the future of tv ? Only reality tv and some old movies ? In my country new movies are not allowed to be airing on free channels before 3 years (after the theatre release)... So if we take away tv series, our tv is only news shows and reality tv... Thank god, we still have amazing documentaries. I guess it's our sad world where everything is going too fast. We can see the same with social media. Nothing lasts. Thanks for answering.

The second season has already wrapped production and HBO will not air it on HBO MAX, which airs everything. They show previously aired episodes of CALL ME KAT, which is fucking horrible. P.S. We want the new Batgirl movie with Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne! John Oliver is right. HBO owners do not give a fuck!!!
