It’s totally got to be called Two Mississippi, amiright?

Amazon announced on Monday that One Mississippi, its critically acclaimed comedy starring and co-created (with Diablo Cody) by Tig Notaro, has been picked up for a second season — about two months after its entire freshman run debuted on the streaming service.

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