Premiere date set for Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish's new TBS comedy, 'The Last O.G.'

TBS has set the premiere date for Jordan Peele and Tracy Morgan’s new TBS comedy, The Last O.G. 

The show will kick things off on April 3. After that, episodes will air on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m.

It was originally set for October 2017, before it got pushed back.

Starring Morgan, alongside Tiffany Haddish, Cedric the Entertainer, Dante Hoagland (Young Michael Bivins in The New Edition Story), Allen Maldonado (black-ish, Survivor RemorseThe Last O.G. is Morgan’s return to television. Haddish, who also starred in the recently-canceled, yet critically acclaimed The Carmichael Show, is having a moment, coming off of what is her breakout performance in Girls Trip.

The Last O.G. revolves around Tray (Morgan), an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly=gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby & Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading unfamiliar territory.

Cedric the Entertainer stars as the head of the halfway house where Tray is staying, and Allen Maldonado as Tray’s cousin Bobby, who helps him adjust to life on the outside. Guest stars will include Edi Patterson, Chrissy Metz (This is Us), Malik Yoba, Heather Simms and more.  Executive-producing with Morgan, Peele and co-creator John Carcieri are Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
