Amazon Renews 'One Mississippi' for Season 2

Amazon has renewed its original comedy series One Mississippi created by and starring Tig Notaro for a second season. The new season will debut on the streaming service in 2017.

One Mississippi 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.

The series stars Notaro, Noah Harpster, John Rothman and Stephanie Allynne.

Notaro and Diablo Cody co-created the series, with Kate Robin serving as showrunner. They all executive produce with M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky and Louis C.K. Amazon Studios, FX Productions and Pig Newton produce.

"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."
