HBO Max is currently going through a major end-of-the-year review and this led to the demise of several shows on this streaming platform. Minx has been canceled despite being renewed for Season 2, with several more shows being pulled from HBO Max amid a slate review.
The cancelation of Minx comes as a shocker since the production of the second season is wrapping up this week. HBO’s partner Lionsgate TV will look for a new home for the comedy series, led by Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson.
“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,” reads Lionsgate TV’s statement.
Minx isn’t the only show to fall victim to HBO Max’s slate review. The streamer recently removed Gordita Chronicles from its platform, and later announced their first original scripted series Love Life, led and executive produced by Anna Kendrick, suffered the same fate.
Another shocker came with the removal of Westworld and The Nevers from HBO Max, but they’ll likely resurface on other platforms. Westworld was recently canceled after four seasons, and HBO’s latest decision comes as a surprise since it’s one of its biggest hits of the last decade.
