In case you missed the memo, there are some juicy new television series soon to be streaming online this autumn, from dramas to comedies and more. We already rounded up the ones to watch on Netflix and HBO, but now we're back with part two: Kalah Dirksen has helped us round up five new shows you'll want to catch on Amazon Prime and Hulu. Take a glimpse at the trailers and mark your calendars, courtesy of the list below

Fall 2016 (Amazon Prime): One Mississippi

This just released semi-autobiographical series follows beloved comedian Tig Notaro (whose documentary, Tigstill tops our list of favorites) as she returns to her hometown in Mississippi to be at the bedside of her ailing mother. The honesty and humor with which Notaro approaches grief and the myriad of emotions it presents is refreshing and hilarious. We think One Mississippi has struck series gold, and also potentially pinpointed the magical anecdote necessary to the healing process.

Fall 2016 (Amazon Prime): Sneaky Pete

From Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and David Shore of House, this series stars Giovanni Ribisi (Public Enemies, Saving Private Ryan) as con man Marius, who assumes the identity of his cellmate, Pete, after leaving prison to take cover from his past. When he returns to the home of Pete's unsuspecting grandparents, he's quickly caught in the midst of the family's bail bond business—and we're excited to see how the drama pans out.

October 4 (Hulu): The Mindy Project

This one's not new, but we couldn't resist. Since moving from network broadcast to streaming on Hulu, The Mindy Project is back! The show is going strong as it enters its fifth season, with new guest stars including Bryan Greenberg (One Tree Hill) and Nasim Pedrad (SNL) as well as old flame BJ Novak. We're most excited about the premiere, titled “Decision 2016,” which addresses the cliffhanger from season four’s finale. (We need some answers, Mindy!)

October 19 (Hulu): Chance

Hugh Laurie (House M.D., Veep) plays the leading man in this new psychological thriller that centers around Eldon Chance, a San Franciscan forensic neuropsychiatrist who gets pulled into a world of mistaken identity, police corruption, and mental illness. The dark, dramatic plot is based on author Kem Nunn's 2014 novel, Tapping the Source, while the show is executive produced and directed by Academy Award nominee Lenny Abrahamson (Room), along with Brian Grazer (Empire, 24, Friday Night Lights).  

Watch the trailer, here.

December 7 (Hulu): Shut Eye

Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and KaDee Strickland (Private Practice) enter the underground of storefront psychics and the organized crime syndicate that runs them. Donovan plays Charlie Haverford, a failed magician who finds his views challenged and starts to experience visions while working as a psychic and con man. This dark comedy asks the question: How do you con a con man? Executive produced by Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad), Shut Eye could be your newest addiction.
