TBS has picked up its original series The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish for a third season. Co-created and executive-produced by Academy Award winner Jordan Peele, The Last O.G. launched as cable’s #1 new comedy in 2018 and the highest-rated cable comedy debut since 2015. The show continues to be a ratings success in its second season, now ranking as cable’s #1 sitcom and reaching a multiplatform audience of 23 million viewers so far.
“The Last OG is very meaningful to me and I am blessed to get to work with my family for another season,” said Morgan. “We are going to go to a whole other level this year. JUST WAIT.”
In Season 2 of The Last O.G., Morgan’s character Tray goes all in on his dreams of becoming a chef, and Tray’s ex-girlfriend Shay (Haddish) collaborates with an unlikely business partner.
Morgan and Haddish will return for the third season, as well as series regulars Ryan Gaul as Shay’s affable husband Josh; Allen Maldonado, who plays Tray’s goofy but well-intentioned cousin Bobby; and Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland, Tray and Shay’s teenage children, Shahzad and Amira.
“We are so proud of The Last O.G.’s continued success,” said Brett Weitz, general manager of TBS and TNT. “This hilarious and heartfelt show has connected with fans and we couldn’t be more grateful for the big laughs that Tracy and the O.G. gang deliver each week.”
The second season of The Last O.G. was executive-produced by Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions; Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum for The Tannenbaum Company; Saladin Patterson; and Joel Zadak of Artists First.
