Writer, director and producer Keenen Ivory Wayans is joining TBS to serve as showrunner on season three of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish. He will also direct four episodes of the comedy series. 

“I’m thrilled and excited to be working with such a great cast, team of producers and reuniting with Tracy Morgan,” said Wayans, “Together we’re all going to take the show to the next level.”

Per TBS description, The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), 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 (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.

Wayans is best known for creating, executive producing and hosting the influential Emmy-winning sketch comedy series In Living Color. The groundbreaking variety show introduced audiences to a new type of comedy and launched the careers of Jamie Foxx and Jim Carrey, among others. Wayans additional credits include directing White Chicks, Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2.

 TBS has not yet announced a premiere date.
