HBO Max has renewed the comedy series Minx for Season 2. The series, created by Ellen Rapoport, premiered on the streaming service in March and concluded on April 14. The series Minx takes place in the 1970s, centered around the idealistic feminist Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond). She collaborates with the low-rent publisher Doug (Jake Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women. Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano, and Oscar Montoya also star in the HBO Max comedy series. Paul Feig and Dan Magnante, under Feigco Entertainment and Rapoport, executive produce the series. Ben Karlin, Rachel Lee Goldenberg, and Jake Johnson also executive produce the show. Goldenberg directed the pilot. Rapoport shared her excitement for the Season 2 renewal saying, “All of us at ‘Minx’ have been blown away by the passionate response from audiences worldwide, who have mashed-up, TikTok-ed, and fanfic-ed us into a renewal.”
Jake Johnson Plays A Great Erotic Magazine Publisher
Jake Johnson, known for playing Nick Miller on New Girl, has smoothly taken on the laid-back erotic magazine publisher. Doug and Joyce constantly butt heads but find common ground in the end. The series Minx does revolve around an erotic magazine but does take on serious subjects like sexism, misogyny, women’s rights, and racism. Doug is rough around the edges but has his employees’ best interests at heart. The HBO Max comedy series Minx will continue Joyce and Doug’s journey in Season 2. Joyce comes around to having a magazine that shows naked men and shows her feminist ideologies. The HBO Max comedy series balances the raunchy with the social commentary well. Jake Johnson is just one of many people on the cast that will hopefully stay for Season 2 of the series Minx. His character balances the obliviousness of Lovibond’s character.
Season 1 of Minx is available to stream on HBO Max.
