Diablo Cody-Tig Notaro Comedy ‘One Mississippi’ Renewed at Amazon

One Mississippi” is getting a second season on Amazon Prime. Season 2 of the critically acclaimed comedy will premiere in 2017 on Prime Video in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan.

Created by Oscar winner Diablo Cody and Emmy nominated comedian Tig Notaro, “One Mississippi” follows a fictionalized version of Notaro as she returns to her Mississippi hometown after her mother suddenly passes away. Kate Robin (“Six Feet Under”) serves as showrunner.

“Making a show as comic and tragic as ‘One Mississippi’ is a risk. Pulling it off with such intelligence and nuance is rare,” said Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios’ head of comedy and drama. “We’re grateful for the audience response and we’re excited to bring them more of Tig and Kate’s brilliance in Season 2.”

Variety‘s Maureen Ryan offered effusive praise for the series when it first hit Amazon Prime in September. “The cumulative power of “One Mississippi” is almost breathtaking, given where it starts,” she wrote. “Given that array of talent, it’s not all that surprising that this is easily one of the best new shows of the year.”

“One Mississippi” stars creator Notaro, Noah Harpster (“Transparent”), John Rothman (“Law & Order”) and Stephanie Allynne (“Comedy Bang! Bang!”). Notaro, Cody, Robin, M. Blair Breard (“Better Things”), Dave Becky (“Master of None”) and Louis C.K. (“Louie”) will be executive producers for Season 2. The series is produced by FX Productions.
