Minimal massive gravity in three dimensions propagates a single massive spin-2 mode around an anti–de Sitter vacuum. It is distinguished by allowing for vacua with positive central charges of the asymptotic conformal algebra and a bulk graviton of positive energy. We present a new action for the model (and its higher order extensions) in terms of a dreibein and an independent spin connection. From this, we construct its supersymmetric extension. Surprisingly, all vacua complying with bulk and boundary unitarity appear to break supersymmetry spontaneously. In contrast, all supersymmetric vacua have a negative central charge whenever the bulk graviton has positive energy.
