Series storyline and production info
One Mississippi, Amazon`s latest scripted original series, became available for streaming on the subscription platform on September 9, 2016. Created by comedian Tig Notaro and Oscar winner Diablo Cody, the series is an intense and dark semi-autobiographical comedy co-produced by Amazon Studios, FX Productions and Pig Newton, Inc. After a successful pilot launched in November 2015, One Mississippi was commissioned for a full series, which contains six half-hour episodes. Notaro, Cody, Kate Robin, M.Blair Breard, Louis C.K. and Dave Becky executive produce, and Notaro stars in the show.
The series follows a woman forced to return to her hometown by the sudden death of her mother. She is battling serious health issues, and now has to deal with the loss of the one supportive and understanding person in her life, as the rest of the dysfunctional family and her tiresome girlfriend only create more problems.
Positive reviews and renewal potential
Gritty, yet touching, sad and full of love, the show has found an audience, and is garnering mostly positive reviews. It is powerful and very personal story, and not necessarily an easy one to digest. While Amazon`s viewership ratings are not available to the general public, the solid IMDb score of 6.7/10 and a whopping 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes are indicative of a likely renewal, although Amazon has yet to announce a second season commission of this fascinating, clever and often brutally honest show that has some truly great moments. Stay tuned, and we`ll bring you the latest information of the future of One Mississippi.
UPDATED November 16, 2016: Amazon`s freshman drama One Mississippi has been picked up for season 2 just two months after the first season was released on the streaming platform. The show`s rare combination of nuanced drama and intelligent sense of humor made it a favorite of both fans and critics right from the outset. One Mississippi season 2 (it`s too tempting to joke about renaming it Two Mississippi, but we`ll pass) is expected to come out in 2017 in the United States, the UK, Germany, Japan and Austria. Please stay tuned, for a release date.
