Amazon Studios today announced One Mississippi, its critically-acclaimed comedy, has been greenlit for a second series.
Starring Emmy Award nominated comedian Tig Notaro (Transparent), created by Notaro and Diablo Cody (Young Adult), with Kate Robin (Six Feet Under) serving as Showrunner, the show follows Tig’s return to her hometown in Mississippi when her mother passes away unexpectedly. As she copes with the tragedy and deals with events from her past, the series becomes a poignant and surprisingly humorous exploration of family.
Season two is scheduled to premiere in 2017 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, US, Germany, Austria, and Japan.
“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, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. “We’re grateful for the audience response and we’re excited to bring them more of Tig and Kate’s brilliance in season two.”
