HBO Max has reversed course on its comedy series Minx — canceling the show despite an earlier renewal for a second season.
The Warner Bros. Discovery-owned streamer renewed Minx, from Lionsgate Television and creator and showrunner Ellen Rapoport, in May, shortly a few weeks after its 10-episode first season concluded. Season two had largely finished production before HBO Max scuttled it in the latest of a string of cost-cutting moves. Lionsgate says it will shop the series, starring Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson, to other outlets.
“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 studio said in a statement.
More to come.
