Janet Hubert joins season 4 of TBS’s The Last O.G.
The Last O.G. follows Tray (Tracy Morgan), an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from a 15-year prison stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Tiffany 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.
