‘The Last OG’ Season 3 Trailer: Tracy Morgan is Back

Published on February 18, 2020

The Last OG season two ended in tragedy. The hit TBS comedy is never light on laughs, but it is never lacking real drama and pain, too. Things took a dark turn in the final moments of season two, which homaged Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing. It was a painful ending, but soon enough, the laughs (and drama) that follow Tray (Tracy Morgan) wherever he goes will return in April. 

The Last OG Season Three Trailer

The teaser trailer for season three of The Last OG is brief, but it features two major surprises. One, heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is in season three. It’s a cameo that might’ve been best saved for the show, but who knows, maybe Iron Mike Tyson has more to do on the series than a simple camep. 

The second – and very delightful – surprise? J . B. Smoove has joined the cast. One of the MVPs of Curb Your Enthusiasm and comedy in general is spotted in the trailer. Per usual, he’s been completely on fire in the latest season of the HBO comedy. He just doesn’t miss. It’s crazy to think he was once overlooked by Saturday Night Live as a writer and cast member. Often his ideas were too out there for SNL, but now, comedy fans everywhere have embraced his completely unique sense of humor. Nobody is like J. B. Smoove on TV. 

Why You Should Be Watching The Last OG 

From co-creators Jordan Peele and John Carcieri, The Last OG is one of the funnier and more poignant comedies on television at the moment. It’s a comedy with pain and laughs, and both parts of the show always get big reactions. It’s not a comedy in which you only laugh with the characters, but also truly care and invest in them and want them to succeed. That’s why the ending of season two, when Tray’s successful food truck was destroyed, stung as much as it did. Not all comedies need a happy ending.

Few comedies on TV nail the drama as much as the laughs as The Last OG does, which has stellar performances from Tracy Morgan, Tiffany Haddish, and all of the supporting players. Like the best comedies, no part is a small part on The Last OG. Any Tracy Morgan fan yet to watch the show is seriously missing out, because it’s some of his most dynamic work to date. 

The Success of the Last OG 

The Last OG has its fans in both critics and cable watchers. The reviews are positive, and the series set a record for TBS when it premiered. The 2018 premiere attracted 1.8 million viewers, making it the most popular TBS show ever and the biggest comedy premiere in cable since 2016. Since the show started, it’s only gained more momentum and love among fans. On all of the show’s platforms, it reaches over 23 million people. The show makes a lot of people very happy, so obviously, FX made a big mistake passing on the comedy. 


Tray (Tracy Morgan) is 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 (Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby and Dante 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.

The Last OG season three premieres on April 7, 2020.
