After 15 years in jail, Morgan's character, Tray, finds a different world from the one he left. Coming back to a gentrified Brooklyn, Tray mistakes two youngins hanging in front of the projects for delinquents. But it turns out that they're just waiting for their friend to go have brunch. "What happened to Brooklyn?" he yells, as two tourists yell "Brooklyn" after him and take a selfie.
There's two more important differences as well—the woman he loves, Shay (played by Tiffany Haddish), is with "a white dude" but Tray is also the father of their twins. And she isn't letting him jump into their lives that quick either. Instead, Shay challenges him to "make something of [himself]." He seems off to a good start (despite some struggles with HR) as he gets a new job as a barista. But once a woman orders a "half-caf, no foam, mocha latte with an extra shot of espresso split into two cups," he just yells in a fit of rage. Honestly, we can't blame him. That's a long, complicated order.
The series, which is executive produced by Morgan and Jordan Peele, also stars Black-ish's Allen Maldonado, Cedric the Entertainer, Taylor Mosby, and Dante Hoagland.
The Last O.G. is scheduled to premiere on April 3 on TBS.
