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.

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.

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.

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

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.

    I loved this show . The director did a great job at showing how an ex convict can leave prison and do well.

    Love this show. Tracy and Tiffany are great. Supporting cast is great. Writing is great. Can't wait for next season.

    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.

    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!

    Tracy Morgan AND Cedric the Entertainer...OKAY
  • Aug 12, 2018
    The Last O.G S1 - You know, I was expecting less then what The Last O.G has brought to the screen and to my mind. I thought all it was is Tray was trying to be a gangster again, but its a pretty heart warming story, until he starts selling crack again.

    I wATCHED SOME OF THE FIRST EPISODE. nOT TO SOUND LIKE A hATER BUT i THINK THE PREMISE AND THE TITLE WAS WASTED HEREIN THIS ENDEAVOR. i DON'T THINK DUDE (mR. mORGAN) IS LEAD MAN MATERIAL. i THINK HE WOULD'VE SHINED MORE AS A SUPPORTING ACTING, MAYBE PLAYING AN INMATE OR CONVICT BUT NOT THE oG. i CAN'T SEE THE HUMOR IN IS HUMOR IT SEEMS WEIRD, OFFSETTING AND AUTISTIC. I don't expect much from this show, I don't expect it to blow my socks off. I may laugh at some of the stupid humor but once that plays out I'll grow bored and watch something else... Maybe I'll give it another chance, at least watch a whole ep.. but I doubt it.
