Minx is set in 1970s Los Angeles and centers around Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Jake Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women. The first season of the show received overwhelmingly good reviews.
When the series first aired in March of this year, it quickly topped Esquire’s list of the “Best TV Shows of 2022 (Thus Far).” It is one of the best HBO Max’s feel-good TV shows in recent memory, with critical and popular praise in several countries. As a result, the announcement that Minx will return for a second season is entirely expected and justified. Here is everything you need to know about Minx Season 2.

Minx Season 2 Potential Release Date
Minx’s first season was released in two-episode installments and aired its final episode on April 14, 2022. As the renewal of the series has been announced within a month’s time period the official release dates are not officially confirmed yet. But fans should rejoice as it is one of the top-rated tv series among the vast catalog of HBO Max which got renewed for another season by the records of viewership and acclaim from audience and critics around the world.
Minx is an exclusive TV series made for HBO Max. Hence, the network will definitely disclose any confirmation about the official release date in the near future once the production and post-production stages are completed without delays. So, we should expect the network to take its time in issuing such details. Moreover, fans should also keep a closer look at the official social media pages of the series for the latest updates.

Minx Season 2 Plot
Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max expressed her thoughts regarding the renewal quoting, “We are thrilled that the world of MINX has resonated in the way that it has. Showrunner and creator Ellen Rapoport, alongside the rest of our gifted creative team, masterfully deliver nuanced humor, with the cast executing her vision seamlessly. We can’t wait for fans to see what medicine Doug and Joyce hide in peanut butter for season two!”
Hence, Minx Season 2 will definitely pick up from the last episode of Season 1. Moreover, in a recent exclusive interview with Esquire, the showrunner, Ellen Rapoport, the potential plot lines of the next season were listed down which indicated that Season 1 concludes with Doug and Joyce’s once-thriving friendship has been shattered by broken promises and questions about trust. Doug’s Bottom Dollar Publications is facing major financial difficulties as a result of a flurry of litigation. Joyce resigns completely, and Doug elevates Tina to editor-in-chief while he searches for a replacement.
We see in Season 1 that Doug begs Joyce to come back, saying that he wants to fix Minx together, as partners. It seems as if Minx Season 2 will see Joyce making Minx on her own, though it won’t be a walk in the park; as Doug has pointed out many times, Joyce is an editor, not a publisher. Meanwhile, Bambi and Shelly’s budding romance appears to be gone, with Shelly back in her husband’s embrace by the end of the season finale.
Moreover, Executive producer Paul Feig in an interview with Collider, stated, “When you set up a show and you go in and pitch it, you have to be able to pitch up to Season Three and Season Four. Not in great detail, but to go, ‘Here’s where this show is going.’ So, yeah, we definitely know where it’s going. I can’t tell you, but it’s good. It’s a very long-term story that will surprise you, along the way. Ellen is so brilliant, she’s got it all mapped out.”
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 with a runtime of 24-35 minutes 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.
Which cast members are 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 completes its production in a scheduled manner without delays.
Moreover, Minx Season 2 will almost certainly star Ophelia Lovibond as Joyce and Jake Johnson as Doug, according to recent reports. “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.”
The prominent cast members of the series include:
- 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
Is there a trailer for Minx Season 2?
No, because the show was only recently renewed, and Minx Season 2 production has yet to begin. As a result, there is no teaser or trailer accessible for fans to catch peeks of the series’ next chapter and speculate on potential main plotlines. In the meantime, watch this exclusive video in which Jake Johnson and Ophelia Lovibond analyze gender stereotypes in the media when it comes to exhibiting sexuality.
Where can you stream Minx Season 2?
When Minx Season 2 is released, it will be available to watch on HBO Max. Meanwhile, watch Minx Season 1, which is presently available to stream exclusively on HBO Max with subscription plans suited to the consumer’s preferences.
