TBS has given season pickups to two of its original series.
Cable’s #1 comedy The Last O.G. will return with a second season and the blistering breakout comedy-thriller Search Party is renewed for a third season.
Season one of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan, Tiffany Haddish and executive produced by Jordan Peele has so far reached a multiplatform audience of nearly 25 million viewers across TBS’ linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms.
It is the largest cable comedy premiere since 2015 and is 2018’s top cable comedy show.
“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 Tracy Morgan, executive producer and star of The Last O.G.
Search Party executive producers Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, who created the series with executive producer Michael Showalter, have 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.
Starring Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Early, John Reynolds and Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party grew double-digits in its sophomore season, was TBS’ #1 series on digital, and became the fastest TBS original to reach one million views on VOD in season one.
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,” said Search Party co-creators and executive producers Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers.
