Maxxxine Renewal Status
The second film in the series and its prequel Pearl premiered at the Venice Film Festival where it was praised by film critics and audiences alike. It had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday. It hits theaters on Friday, September 16.
Goth takes place several decades before the events of X, and in that film Goth reprises her role as would-be psycho-biddy Pearl. Goto describes her character as “a starry-eyed country girl with a short fuse here and there and a deadly ambition.” Regarding X’s achievements, producer Peter Phok told MovieWeb, “It’s incredible to be a part of something that starts from an idea and goes from script to screen.”

“Since it became available to the public, X has soared to new heights. It already exists and is rooted in popular culture. With all the memes and references, the overwhelmingly positive response from fans and critics of X is amazing and entertaining. Phok said of the decision to expand the story into a trilogy: “Set sixty years before X, the prequel presents Mia Goth as a deep and complex gem. Ti is excited to bring this world to life. It’s a satisfying end to the film trilogy and continues its tradition of delivering something fresh and innovative.
Ti West’s decision to turn the series into a trilogy seems to have been reinforced by the widespread popularity of the series over the years, especially considering Pearl’s success at various film festivals. MaXXXine has yet to announce a release date, but Pearl is expected to be released on September 16, 2022.
