There’s something about erotic comedy shows set in the past that fans can’t get enough of. The shows are known for their kitschy, over-the-top plots that focus on the lives of women in the 1920s and 1930s. Most of the time, the actresses play flappers and other women of the time who are having trouble with love, marriage, and motherhood.
The stories are meant to be funny and tongue-in-cheek, but they also show how women were treated during this time. Most of the time, the movies are told from the point of view of a woman who is trying to find her place in a world that doesn’t always value or treat her fairly, or at least not as much as it does men.
One of these shows is Minx. The HBO period erotic comedy that debuted in March of this year had a fresh idea that was well-received and helped it find its audience quickly. Because the show was so popular, it was given a second season in May. But there has been a bad smell on the internet about what will happen to the show. Read this article to learn everything you need to know.
HBO Won’t Air the Second Season of Minx
Yes, this may sound strange to all the Minx fans who jumped for joy when the streaming network announced that the show would be back for a second season. But today, shocking news is coming out of the HBO offices: the show has been cancelled and the second season has been pulled back.
The show “Minx” with Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson has been cancelled by HBO Max. They will not be back for a second season. The comedy show was picked up in May, after getting mostly positive but also some negative reviews.
This is the last week of filming for the new season, which will end as planned next week. The season will be taken off of HBO Max and Lionsgate TV, which are the networks that support the series and the producers of the most recent season.
Why Did HBO Decide to Drop Minx?
Sources say that the show’s second season was just wrapping up when Warner Bros. Discovery decided to cancel it as part of their efforts to cut costs.
Even the first season of this show won’t be available on HBO Max. It will be removed from Lionsgate Television’s catalogue so that it can be sold to another provider.
Lionsgate put out a statement saying that they have had a great time working with HBO and that the series will now be streamed on their own platform.
After HBO Max Cancelled Minx, Season Two is Still Being Filmed
The show got a second season in May 2022. Deadline says that HBO Max will bring back Minx for a second season. TV shows have been about the male point of view for a long time, and the male and female points of view have never been equal.
Jake Johnson said in an Instagram post on December 13 that the cast and crew are still working on the second season and are “about a week away from being done shooting.”
What Was The Show About?
The story of “Minx” takes place in 1970s Los Angeles. Joyce, who is a feminist and works with a low-rent publisher to make the first erotic magazine for women, is the main character of the show.
When it first came out, the show was praised by critics. Season 1 has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano, and Oscar Montoya were some of the big names in the cast.
