The Last O.G., Tracy Morgan’s critically acclaimed and popular TBS sitcom that follows a former convict trying to readjust to life in hipster Brooklyn, has been picked up for a fourth season. This isn’t particularly a surprise. What is a surprise is, when they released all the names coming back to the show, Tiffany Haddish’s wasn’t on there. Reportedly, she does not have a contract for season four and is therefore not expected to return. Also leaving the show is last season’s show runner Keenen Ivory-Wayans, who is being replaced by Owen Smith.
“The Last O.G. has become more powerfully poignant with each season while always remaining incredibly funny,” said Sam Linsky and Adrienne O’Riain, co-heads of scripted original programming at TBS, TNT and TruTV. “Tracy Morgan embraces the world with his humor while Owen Smith tackles real-life conversations head-on through hilarity. We can’t wait to see where they take us in season four.”
“I am so excited that we get to make another season of The Last O.G.,” Tracy Morgan said in his own statement. “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.”
“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,” said the incoming Owen Smith. “I’m looking forward to telling stories that humanize Black men in ways that are not just comedic but relevant and real.”
And while it may be a while before the show comes back (the fact that it is filmed all around New York and is so community based makes it a little harder), we are happy that it will be eventually back!
