The Last O.G. has been renewed for season 4 with a new showrunner and without one of its original stars. Tracy Morgan will return as the lead but it looks like Tiffany Haddish won’t be back.
Co-created and executive-produced by Jordan Peele, the series follows Tray (Morgan), “an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from a 15-year prison stint. After finding a place to live and new forms of income, Tray continues to meet challenges as he re-paves his way in his newly affluent Brooklyn neighborhood.”
Series co-lead Tiffany Haddish is not listed as returning. Though the network did not confirm this information when this news was sent to press, both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety say that Haddish, who is very much the in-demand actress, is not returning. Continuing a tradition of having a new showrunner each season Owen Smith is taking over the reins from Keenan Ivory Wayans.
“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 for 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.,’” said Morgan. “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 Smith. “I’m looking forward to telling stories that humanize Black men in ways that are not just comedic but relevant and real.”
No word on when the season will go into production or when it will premiere.
