Tv Season Info

Tray Barker (Tracy Morgan) returns home to Brooklyn after spending 15 years in prison, only to find his home much changed from gentrification. Among the many changes Tray needs to adjust to is his ex-girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish) raising their twins Amira (Taylor Christian Mosby) and Shazad (Dante Hoagland) with her husband Josh (Ryan Gaul), who happens to be white. With the aid of his cousin Bobby (Allen Maldonado) and his halfway house gang, led by house owner Miniard Mullins (Cedric the Entertainer), Tray tries to walk the straight and narrow so he could stay close to his kids. His new way of living, however, gets threatened when he crosses paths with Wavy (Malik Yoba), the man who got him into prison in the first place.

Critic Reviews for The Last O.G. Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (21)

The Last O.G. doesn't fully commit to being a dramedy: The punchlines sometimes fall flat or feel too retrograde, while the drama feels restrained and too fleeting to land. But it succeeds in telling a story not told enough.

Jun 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Get past the series' OK opener along with some of its searing vulgarity - hey, this is a Tracy Morgan show, after all - and "The Last O.G." settles down into something else and something better

Above all, "The Last O.G." is a showcase for Morgan, and he enjoys a star's triumph.

Mar 30, 2018 | Full Review…

I can't say The Last O.G. is a triumph; the writing would need to cut even deeper for that, and every single jail-shower joke would need to miraculously disappear. But it's nonetheless a promising vehicle for Morgan, and I'm eager to see where it goes.

Mar 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps Morgan never knew he had this in him. Maybe audiences didn't either. Surprise, surprise.

Top Critic

If the comedy wants to be a clever, foul-mouthed sitcom with broad appeal rooted in its affable performers, that's more than fine. But it's not very gangster.

Top Critic

The show demonstrates great potential to be both funny and enlightening on the plight of ex-cons in America.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's definitely worth your watch as a brief summer binge.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Morgan and Haddish are reliably funny, and the story of Tray's return to a world that passed him by has a lot of potential.

Apr 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Ex-con rebuilds his life in crude yet oddly sweet comedy.

Apr 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Once it settles into its groove, The Last O.G. is a wonderfully enjoyable comedy.

Apr 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Whether trading barbs with Cedric the Entertainer as the jokester head of his halfway house or cajoling the clientele at his coffeehouse workplace, [Tracy] Morgan is a joy.

Audience Reviews for The Last O.G.: Season 1

  • Jun 21, 2020
    Amazing first season, great thoughtful show, do not watch season 2 though, unless you want toilet humor, but first season was brilliant and enjoyed it a lot
  • Jun 10, 2020
    I found the DNA comment about Irish being drunks offensive and hurtful. The writer's need diversity training. Will never watch again.
  • Apr 09, 2020
    This is seriously offensive to white people. How is it all black people think all of us are racist when you say things like snow queen? Or Owl? Seriously???? I have always been a fan of his but I will no longer watch him or anything he is in. My best friend is a black man and even he understands this. The tables have turned. No one alive today put you in slavery and none of you have been slaves. Its not fair that we have to walk on egg shells but you can say offensive things towards us. I cant walk by a black person and say an offensive term but so many times I have I walked by them and been called "cracker" or "snow bunny" or been completely ignored when trying to just talk and ask a question. And I'm not saying everyone is like this but a lot are. And to put it on public tv and have people laughing at it isn't right. If we had white people saying racist terms on public tv it would be an immediate lawsuit. It's stupid. Everyone is suppose to be equal and we should all have the same rights but it doesnt seem that way. And I'm sure someone will say something to call out that 1 person that is racist and I'm sorry for that but not all of us are actually very few of us are. And I understand not everyone has the same privileges but everyone has the ability to try and work hard. I grew up very poor but I worked hard and now have a different life. Just saying my peace. Sorry if I offended you. Well actually I'm not because this show offends me and shouldn't be on the air if we cant be the same.

    I loved this show . The director did a great job at showing how an ex convict can leave prison and do well.
  • Jan 10, 2019
    Love this show. Tracy and Tiffany are great. Supporting cast is great. Writing is great. Can't wait for next season.
  • Dec 29, 2018
    Tracy Morgan makes this okay show funny. The premise is pretty funny. Guy gets put away for 15 years, comes back to see his neighborhood has been a victim of gentrification and to top that off his ex-girlfriend is married to a white guy. It gets serious at times, but there are some good laughs. I will definitely check out season 2 when it comes out.
  • Dec 10, 2018
    Good acting and writing. Surprising depth.
  • Oct 27, 2018
    So funny! I’m absolutely in love with this show!
  • Sep 26, 2018
    This is my new favorite show of 2018. I'm mad that I can't find recaps or decent reviews ANYWHERE. The one review I did find on USAToday was written by someone who obviously doesn't understand the culture. I can't wait for season 2!
