Amazon cancels original shows ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’, ‘One Mississippi’, and ‘I Love Dick’

Amazon has decided not to renew their original shows Jean-Claude Van Johnson, One Mississippi, and I Love Dick, according to Deadline. The cancellation of Jean-Claude Van Johnson comes just one month after the show’s first season debuted. I Love Dick was the second project from Transparent creator Jill Soloway, but it hasn’t had the same success as the Golden Globe-winning comedy. One Mississippi is arguably the most successful of the three shows being canceled, having released two seasons with an overall 94% rating with critics on Rotten Tomato. These cancellations are said to be further examples of Amazon’s decision to focus on big shows with a wider audience appeal, like the upcoming Lord of the Rings series.

    What a shame! “One Mississippi” and “I Love Dick” were both very unique, wonderful shows. I love those kind of small, intimate, personal programs. “Lord of the Rings” type epics are the last thing I’d watch!

    Most people I queried would rather have “Oasis” than another Lords of the Rings series.

    I loved the pilot for Jean Claude van Johnson, but it’s a concept that didn’t even scale well to a single season. I’ve only gotten through the third episode, and the reliance of all the jokes on the one, core meta-concept has already worn very thin. Canceling is the right move.

      I disagree. I binge watched the 1st season. I thought it was engaging. Kept me engaged anyway. Sorry to see it go. We need comedy, not more LoTR fantasy crap.

    I loved Jean Claude van Johnson. Hilarious!
