TBS has officially given Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele’s comedy show, The Last O.G., the green light to move forward with a third season! The television network has also unveiled that writer-comedian Owen Smith will be the series’ new showrunner instead of Keenan Ivory Waynes. This renewal follows The Last O.G.’s 10-episode third season four months ago.
“I am so excited that we get to make another season of ‘The Last O.G.,” Morgan said in a statement (via The Futon Critic). “All I ever want to do is try and bring joy to people, which is hard right now, but I appreciate that we will have the chance to go back to work and do what we can to make the world a little brighter.”
Smith added, “I was already a big fan of the show so getting the opportunity to helm this production and work with this amazing cast and crew is a huge honor. I’m looking forward to telling stories that humanize Black men in ways that are not just comedic but relevant and real.”
Ultimately Tracy Morgan’s series explores the life of an ex-con, Tray, who gets released from prison due to good behavior. Shortly after, Tray finds out that his former girlfriend has married a successful business mogul and birthed twins (who he had no idea existed). Now, it’s up to Tray to make ends meet to give himself and children the best future possible.
The third season sees Tray trying to find a new home after his time runs short in a half-way house. On top of that, Tray has to worry about the declining demand from his food truck!
Elsewhere, Tray’s ex Shay lands a deal that could change the family’s lives forever. Now, he must find a new gig out of the gentrified side of Brooklyn.
