The Minx trailer revealed Jake Johnson and Ophelia Lovepond in a very different setting. Along with the trailer for the series we now also have a confirmed release date and other details regarding the highly anticipated romcom. So, now the question arises when will Minx release? And will it premiere on HBO Max?
Ellen Rapoport is the mastermind behind the series. She has also written high profile shows like Desperado for Netflix and many more streaming sites. Minx happens to be her next big project. Moreover the plot of the movie is quite different from other rom coms. It has all the perfect tropes which make it stand out from others of its own kind. Below you’ll read everything about the latest updates of Minx!
The Minx series is confirmed to premiere on 17th March Thursday exclusively on HBO Max. The first two episodes will be released on this day while the rest of 8 episodes will follow a weekly schedule. So, the season has a total of 10 episodes! Already fans have started speculating about the sequel. Well the sequel totally depends on the success of the first season. If this goes well it won’t take much time for HBO Max to give the creators the greenlight for a second season.
The last episode of the 10 episodes long season will premiere on 14th April.
The series is releasing around the best time considering its plot. As the show is about a feminist the producers made the right choice of releasing it around the women’s month. The trailer of Minx gave a very strong 1970s aesthetic. And it followed Joyce on her long journey of rejections. She happens to have a female centric pitch for a magazine. But due to obvious reasons no publisher agrees with her idea.
Until she runs into Doug who accepts this idea because he gets the background behind the erotic magazines. And this is from where their story starts. Both brainstorm on how to present the idea to the public so that it won’t cause an uproar. It wasn’t an easy road especially for Joyce who after some time seemed to lose it amidst all the magazine hustle.
Midway through the trailer she realizes that is never how she wanted to get her idea across the male dominated society. Joyce was so desperate to get the magazine published that she agreed with a literal mob! However, she buckles up by the end of the trailer even though she gets titled “the porn queen of Pasadena”. However the magazine proved to be a hit and a pivotal point for the people who identified as women and also changed the miserable states of the women associated with this industry.
Overall the trailer garnered a lot of attention especially because of the strong message. The audience and the critics both seem very impressed. Hopefully this hype will also be maintained following its release. A lot of set pictures are also on the web so make sure to look at them as well! Moreover the trailer is now available for streaming on YouTube.
