“We couldn’t be prouder of these two comedies and that they’ve been recognized by critics and audiences alike for their uniquely hilarious points of view in a very crowded field,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of programming for TBS.
“We truly believe ‘The Last O.G.’ and ‘Search Party’ are two of the best shows on television,” he added.

“The Last O.G.” is getting a second season and stars Tracy Morgan as former felon Tray Barker, who returns to his Brooklynn neighborhood after 15 years to find it gentrified. Tiffany Haddish also stars with Allen Maldonado, Ryan Gaul, and Cedric the Entertainer. Morgan executive produces with Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, Saladin Patterson and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
“I would like to thank God, my family, the fans and TBS and everyone that has been given a second chance. We love you!!!” Morgan said.
“Search Party” is renewed for its third season, and stars Alia Shawkat, John Reynolds, John Early and Meredith Hagner. The four millennials make up a group who, in Seasons 1 and 2, covered up a murder and have slowly unraveled since. Michael Showalter executive produces with co-creators Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, and Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez. It’s produced by Turner’s Studio T in association with Jax Media.

“Making Search Party has been a very dreamy experience because of the support and enthusiasm of the entire TBS team, so we of course jumped at the chance to make more things with them,” said Bliss and Rogers in a joint statement. “Our plan is to pitch them one hundred shows a day, amounting to 36,500 pitches. It’s never been done before and that’s why it has to happen.”

“The Last Og” stars Tracy Morgan as Tray, an ex-con released from a 15-year prison stint who returns to his native Brooklyn only to find it completely changed.
His strict Calvinist parents refused to allow him to see a film until he was 18. And what is perfect for his attending Rotterdam, is that his ancestors come from the Dutch.
He came Iffr with First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric the Entertainer, a (kind of) spiritual follow-up to his screenplay for Taxi Driver, and in a masterclass he conjured up a cinematic resurrection of a troubled Nic Cage pic. As always with Schrader, the devil is in the detail.
The house was packed with an audience — most of whom hadn
“And this time I’m going to do it right,” Morgan said. “I wanted to do TV the way it should be done.” Morgan plays Tray, an ex-con who is released after 15 years in prison and realizes the world has changed, from his now gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood to his ex-girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish), who’s now married to a white man (Ryan Gaul). An even bigger shocker: Shay is raising two teens — who turn out to be Tray’s kids, whom he didn’t know even existed. Cedric the Entertainer also stars,
“I’m glad to be back in front of my audience. I miss them. I love them,” Morgan told Variety on the carpet. “And I know what my purpose in this world is, to spread love and not throw anyone away. It’s all about forgiveness.”
