May no Tig Notaros be further harmed in the making of this production. One Mississippi, Notaro’s somewhat autobiographical Amazon sadcom, has been renewed for a second season. Created by Notaro and Diablo Cody and starring Notaro, One Mississippi’s first season found its foundation when Notaro, in quick succession, lost her mother to a sudden death, went through a breakup, contracted an illness, and fought cancer. Since Notaro’s real life has been made of sunnier stuff of late, here’s hoping the well of fiction runs deep for round two. Amazon will premiere One Mississippi’s new batch of episodes some time next year. Or, hey, with Notaro, who knows? This season-two announcement could just be another exercise in excruciating suspense.
