Starz announced today that it will air Season 2 of Minx, saving it from cancellation. The news comes a month after the comedy's original home, HBO Max, reversed its decision to bring the show back for a second season. The cable network posted a video on its Twitter feed featuring the cast announcing the pickup and thanking fans for the support.

The half-hour series premiered last March with a 10-episode run that garnered high praise from critics. While HBO Max ordered a renewal shortly after, the move was reversed in December as part of the streaming service axing a number of its originals related to an overall scaling back of content since the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery.

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. Seeing as Season 2 has already completed production, it will likely premiere sometime this year.
