Jake Johnson Teases Grim Fate for 'Minx' Season 3 as He Sheds His Locks
Jake Johnson doesn’t have high hopes for Minx season 3. He admitted during an interview that he doesn't expect a renewal for the show. The actor dubbed Minx’s overall fate as 'unfortunate' because 'there was a lot to that show.'
Minx originally premiered on Max for its first season in March 2022. In May of that year, the series was picked up for a second season. However, the streamer canceled the show in December 2022, while the cast and crew were in production on season 2. Starz picked up the series and aired its second season in July.
Johnson told Deadline that he thinks the move to Starz and the strike were brutal for the show. He also expressed his love for the cast, crew, and writers of Minx.
Johnson starred as Doug Renetti, a publisher who teams up with Joyce Prigger to create the first-ever erotic magazine for women. Michael Angarano, Jessica Lowe, Oscar Montoya, Lennon Parham, and Idara Victor also starred.
Johnson previously explained that he decided to take a chance on the show because it was 'one of the best things that I’ve read in years.' He described the show's premise and his character's role in it.
While the fate of Minx might still be up in the air, it’s safe to say that Johnson will keep looking for new TV roles. He expressed his love for television and his preference for working on TV shows over films.
