Amazon Studios announced today that it has greenlighted a new season of the critically acclaimed comedy series “One Mississippi.”
Season two of the show, created by comedian Tig Notaro and Diablo Cody, will premiere in 2017 exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan.
Reviews have been strong for season one of the show, with Rolling Stone calling it “a brilliant series” and Entertainment Weekly declaring the show a “must watch.”
The show stars Notaro, an Emmy-nominated comedian, with “Six Feet Under’s” Kate Robin on board as showrunner.
“‘One Mississippi’ follows Tig’s return to her hometown in Mississippi when her mother passes away unexpectedly,” the announcement notes. “As she copes with the tragedy and deals with events from her past, the series becomes a poignant and surprisingly humorous exploration of family.”
Said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios: “Making a show as comic and tragic as ‘One Mississippi’ is a risk. Pulling it off with such intelligence and nuance is rare. We’re grateful for the audience response and we’re excited to bring them more of Tig and Kate’s brilliance in season two.”
Along with Notaro, the show stars 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. are executive producers for season two.
