‘Search Party,’ ‘The Last OG’ Renewed at TBS

TBS has renewed both “The Last OG” and “Search Party” for new seasons, the network announced Monday.

“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.”

“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. The series also stars Tiffany Haddish, Allen Maldonado, Ryan Gaul, and Cedric the Entertainer. The series is executive produced by Morgan, Jordan Peele for Monkeypaw Productions, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, Saladin Patterson and Joel Zadak of Principato Young. The first season of the series debuted on March 31.

“I would like to thank God, my family, the fans and TBS and everyone that has been given a second chance. We love you!!!” said Morgan.

“Search Party” follows a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder. It stars Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Early, John Reynolds, and Brandon Micheal Hall. The series was co-created by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers, and Michael Showalter, who executive produce along with Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez. The series is produced by Turner’s Studio T in association with Jax Media. Season 2 of the series debuted on Nov. 19, 2017.

Bliss and Rogers have also inked an overall deal with TBS. In addition to continuing to oversee “Search Party,” the duo will develop and produce new projects exclusive to Turner in television and digital programming.

“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,” the pair said. “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.”
