Will fans get to see another insane chapter in Joyce Prigger’s life in the 1970s? Read on to find out more about Minx Season 2.
This series is, without a doubt, a must-see this year. Not only do we agree on this, but so do the reviewers. The series has received appreciation and acclaim from a global audience for its performance and plot. HBO Max has emerged as the go-to destination for comedies about female sexuality. And we wouldn’t expect anything less from the network that gave birth to the genre.
This fictionalized origin narrative of the first porn magazine intended for the female gaze is an entertaining yet enlightening look at a time and place that was unintentionally characterized by a developing women’s liberation movement.
It’s a show that values its characters and wants what’s best for them, finding amusing methods to accomplish this within the greater framework of ongoing conflict.
Minx is an American comedy television series produced and written by Ellen Rapoport that stars Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson. It premiered on HBO Max on March 17, 2022. On February 19, 2020, HBO Max announced that the project had received a pilot order. Ellen Rapoport, of Feigco Entertainment, was tapped to write and executive produce alongside Paul Feig and Dan Magnante.

Is Minx renewed for Season 2?
As of now, there is no official confirmation about the potential renewal for Season 2. Many have just speculated that the series should be renewed for another future installment because the show’s reception speaks for itself, and it does have a large appeal to a massive audience.
We would suggest fans patiently wait for a while as these updates take time to be announced. As the finale episode was aired just a few days ago, dated April 14, 2022, it’s too early to ask for Minx Season 2. The final episode, You happened to me, was directed by Stella Meghie and written by Ellen Rapoport.
So, there is potential that the series might get renewed as recently, many reviews have favored its renewal as Vulture also stated that the show has “good ideas [and] potentially great execution,” though found Joyce’s hang-ups about female desire a “tiresome” plot point that hopefully gets smoothed out in future seasons.
In an April 2022 interview, executive producer Paul Feig revealed that he has the Season 2 blueprint when questioned about the prospect of a second season. “When you set up a show and you go in and pitch it, you have to be able to pitch up to Season 3 and Season 4,” he told Collider. “Not in great detail, but … we definitely know where it’s going.”
Minx Season 2 Potential Release Date
No release dates have been announced yet. As the Minx has just completed its first season’s final episode. So, Minx Season 2 will take some time to arrive on streaming services if the series receives renewal updates ahead of time.
Hence, we will not predict any release dates as the production stage also takes up a lot of time for the series to be completed if in fact it is greenlit for another season. Moreover, the HBO Max series usually tends to take a year between seasons to be renewed, which means the earliest we can expect Minx Season 2 to debut is sometime around March 2023 if news break about its renewal.
Minx Season 2 Episodes
The official number of episodes in Minx Season 2 has not yet been officially confirmed as the viewers wait for its renewal, but we can predict at least 10 episodes in the next season because many series prefer to keep the episodes range in a similar pattern for any future installments.
For the time being, however, fans should also keep in mind that sometimes the story needs to be told in a way that can be covered in a limited number of episodes unless they have a much longer season to explore more in-depth in relation to production factors which makes upcoming season possible. So, we suggest the fans wait and keep an eye out for such updates, which may be revealed shortly.
But, for the sake of the fans, we should expect the forthcoming season to feature at least 10 episodes, similar to Season 1, which were titled and released on the following dates:
- S1E1: “Not like a shvantz right in the face” – March 17, 2022
- S1E2: “Au revoir, le double dong” – March 17, 2022
- S1E3: “Norman Mailer, Samantha Shortcake” – March 24, 2022
- S1E4: “An exciting new chapter in the annals of erotica” – March 24, 2022
- S1E5: “Relaying news of a wayward snake” – March 31, 2022
- S1E6: “Mary had a little hysterectomy” – March 31, 2022
- S1E7: “God save the Queen of Dicks” – April 7, 2022
- S1E8: “Oh, so you’re the sun now? You’re the giver of life?” – April 7, 2022
- S1E9: “A scintillating conversation about a lethal pesticide” – April 14, 2022
- S1E10: “You happened to me” – April 14, 2022
The average runtime of each episode is around 24–35 minutes. So, we can expect Minx Season 2 to have the same runtime for each episode when it is renewed and available to stream by the viewers.
What to expect from Minx Season 2?
We can probably expect to see how Bottom Dollar Publications handles the protests in season 2 of Minx. There is a chance that Joyce may decide to pursue her own career. Minx Season 2 may focus more on Doug’s problems as he opposes Westbury’s efforts to make pornographic magazines illegal. It can show the consequences of Doug and Tina’s relationship now that she is forced to leave Los Angeles. Tina, on the other hand, is unlikely to appear onscreen. Shelly and Lenny would work on their relationship. Finally, Bambi and Richie may decide to accompany Joyce on her quest to become an independent woman.
The main cast members are as follows:
- Ophelia Lovibond as Joyce Prigger
- Michael Angarano as Glenn
- Jessica Lowe as Bambi
- Oscar Montoya as Richie
- Lennon Parham as Shelly
- Idara Victor as Tina
- Jake Johnson as Doug Renetti
Some of the guest cast members are as follows:
- Taylor Zakhar Perez as Shane Brody
- Stephen Tobolowsky as Conrad Ross
- Amy Landecker as Bridget Westbury
- Olivia Rose Keegan as Amber
- Jacqi Vene as Marian
- Austin Nichols as Billy Brunson
- Lesli Margherita as Francesca
- Al Sapienza as Vince
- Alicia Hannah-Kim as Wendy Mah
Who is returning for Minx Season 2?
There is no official announcement made regarding any new additions or removal to the cast members of the series. So, we have to wait for any such updates, which will be revealed once the series gets renewed for another season.
Moreover, in a recent interview, it was revealed that Minx Season 2 would almost definitely have Ophelia Lovibond as Joyce and Jake Johnson as Doug. “In a way, they’re kind of two halves of the same whole,” Rapoport told Script Mag. “They both have the thing that you need to be a successful human I think, in the world of commerce. I think that she has passion and ideals and a real drive to change things. And I think he is just relentlessly practical.”
We can also expect the Minx staff to return, including Jessica Lowe as Bambi, Oscar Montoya as Richie, Lennon Parham as Shelly, and Idara Victor as Tina. “It’s such a deep bench [of actors],” Feig told Collider, adding that going forward, he’d “love to see each one of them have their own story.”
Is there a trailer for Minx Season 2?
No, as the series is yet to be renewed along with the production stage, which has not begun. So, there is no trailer available for the fans to watch.
For the time being, take a look at the official poster and the trailer for Minx Season 1 below:
Check out the official trailer for Minx below:
In the trailer, we can see Joyce’s life is flipped upside down when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a culture war while living in a world of pornographic periodicals. As shown in the trailer, the naive Joyce gets rejected by a number of (male) publishers before meeting Doug, one of the Valley’s most prodigious porn sellers.
Moreover, Joyce is struggling to adjust to the filthy, low-rent world of a porn company. But she gradually accepts the popularity her magazine has achieved, forever transforming the debate about women’s sexuality.

Minx Official synopsis
Minx is an HBO Max Original comedy that depicts the trials of a woman who aspires to alter the publishing industry in the 1970s by using her desire and talent as a writer. She’s boisterous and starry-eyed and said the low-rent publisher is looking to make some quick bucks.
This unlikely alliance sees the characters learning about life while finding meaningful relationships in the oddest places. She is particularly interested in improving how the industry portrays women.
Unfortunately for her, her original proposal on how to effect change does not resonate with publishing’s gatekeepers. That’s when she decides to form a partnership to launch the first erotic magazine for women.
According to HBO Max, “In the 1970s, Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond) is a young feminist from Los Angeles who forms an unexpected bond with editor Doug (Jake Johnson) as they set out to produce the first women’s pornographic magazine.”
