Amazon and Netflix are battling over who can create the best original shows in the streaming universe.

 

Netflix will release 600 hours of original shows and movies in 2016, and while Amazon is nowhere near that, CFO Brian Olsavsky has said the company is poised to triple its originals count over the rest of the year.

 

On Monday, Amazon announced the upcoming schedule for its fall shows, which includes the return of fan favorites like “The Man in the High Castle” and “Transparent,” as well as new shows like Woody Allen’s “Crisis in Six Scenes.”

 

Here are the shows we know Amazon will release by the end of the year, including Metacritic data about how their previous seasons fared with critics and the public, if they are returning shows.

Amazon Description: “‘One Mississippi’ is a traumedy inspired by comedian Tig Notaro’s life. We find Tig as she leaves Los Angeles and returns to her hometown in Mississippi upon her mother’s untimely death.  What starts as Tig reconciling her mother’s affairs, becomes a poignant, hilarious, and surprising exploration of family, childhood, and life after grief.”

Amazon Description: “‘Fleabag’ is a hilarious and poignant window into the mind of a dry-witted, sexual, angry, grief-riddled woman, as she hurls herself at modern living in London. Award-winning playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge writes and stars as Fleabag, an unfiltered woman trying to heal, while rejecting anyone who tries to help her and keeping up her bravado all along. Unfettered, unfiltered, and based on the play that won Fringe First Award at Edinburgh, ‘Fleabag’ is the thoroughly disarming confessional of a woman so totally detached, she’s utterly lost.”

 
 
 

“Transparent” Season 3 – September 23
