‘The Last O.G.’: Chelsea Frei To Recur On TBS’ Tracy Morgan-Tiffany Haddish Comedy
Exclusive: The Moodys star Chelsea Frei is set for a recurring role on the upcoming third season of TBS comedy series The Last O.G., starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish.

Co-created and executive-produced by Oscar winner Jordan Peele, season two of The Last O.G. saw Morgan’s character Tray going all in on his dreams of becoming a chef, and Tray’s ex-girlfriend Shay (Haddish) collaborating with an unlikely business partner.

Frei will play Luna, a millennial Brooklynite who is politically correct to a fault. She is self-righteous and rife with contradictions; She’s a hippie, anti-consumerist who loves shopping and an ardent feminist who unironically loves The Bachelorette.

Along with Morgan and Haddish, series regulars include Ryan Gaul, Allen Maldonado, Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland.

Actress, producer and writer Frei can currently be seen starring in the Fox event comedy series, The Moodys, alongside Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins and Jay Baruchel.

Timed to its participation in the WarnerMedia upfront festivities, TBS has ordered two new shows to series and announced the renewal of two comedies.

Take a look at what shows will be joining and returning to the network’s 2019-2020 schedule.

Series Orders

TBS has decided to give “Full Frontal” correspondant Amy Hoggart her own show.

The untitled project will be a half-hour, non-political series which will explore everyday problems through Hoggart’s unique humor, blending scripted and unscripted segments.

Hoggart will pen the series, while continuing her correspondent duties on Samantha Bee’s show.

“I’m so relieved to be finally getting my money’s worth after an expensive and so far useless psychology course,” said Hoggart. “I’ll be exploring the topics we all have a hard time coping with, learn why we do the insane things we do, and unnecessarily demean myself for laughs. I’m beyond

Tiffany Haddish Does a Pretty Great Tracy Morgan Impression (Video)

Tiffany Haddish Does a Pretty Great Tracy Morgan Impression (Video)
She was ready with that Tracy Morgan impression: Tiffany Haddish showed off some comedic range Tuesday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” doing a pretty spot-on impersonation of her “The Last O.G.” co-star.

“Is Tracy the richest person you know?” Jimmy Kimmel asked his Brooklyn guest.

“I’ve done a lot of Bar Mitzvahs,” Haddish replied. “I’m gonna say, no.”

“I think he’s one of the richest people I know,” she said, using the generous setup to launch into her impression.

For the impersonation, Haddish goofed on Morgan’s odd octopus collection. The line, “You know my fish tank is crazy,” just feels ripe for Morgan-voice.

‘The Last O.G.’ Trailer: Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan Cover Each Other in Flour in Season 2

‘The Last O.G.’ Trailer: Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan Cover Each Other in Flour in Season 2
Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan made for one of the more enjoyable TV pairings of last year. Playing a pair of ex-partners adjusting to life after Tray (Morgan) is released from prison, the two form the narrative and comedic backbone of the TBS series “The Last O.G.”

When the show premiered last spring, IndieWire’s Ben Travers said of Haddish (and the show’s first season overall), “She’s a force as much as she constitutes the show’s limitations overall: Very good yet not yet great, the rest of the series gets a lot right early on without making a move to the top tier of television. That may nag at some who come in with ultra-high expectations, but Haddish and Morgan are marvelous, and ‘The Last O.G.’ could easily coast for six seasons on their charm alone.”

On “The Last O.G.,” Tray (Tracey Morgan) gets out of prison after 15 years to barely recognize his gentrified borough neighborhood, while on “Search Party,” the characters are representations of the new residents post-gentrification.

“People want to say gentrification is all bad, but no, it’s good. Clean the place up. I’ve got grandparents, I’ve got people that work and walk there, and they’re safer,” Morgan said to Variety. “I’m not going to get too into politics. Politics is a pile of tricks!”

Tracy Morgan on the Movie He Wants To Make With ‘The Last O.G.’ Co-Star Tiffany Haddish
Tracy Morgan believes in second chances. “For me, I got a second chance at life, I got a second chance at love, I got a second chance at show business and a career,” Morgan told IndieWire. The comedian returns to series TV on Tuesday night with TBS’ “The Last O.G.,” his first major role since recovering from a horrific automobile accident in 2014.

“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,
