TBS is staying the course with Search Party and The Last O.G.

The Turner-owned cable network has renewed both comedies for additional seasons, with Search Party returning for its third and Tracy Morgan's Last O.G. for its second.

In addition, Search Party creators Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers have signed an overall deal with TBS to create and develop new linear and digital programming. 

The Last O.G., starring Morgan and Girls Trip breakout Tiffany Haddish, was picked up straight to series at FX before being moved to TBS. The comedy, executive produced by Jordan Peele, marks Morgan's return to TV following 30 Rock. Per TBS, nearly 25 million people have watched or sampled the series on linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms. 

“I would like to thank God, my family, the fans and TBS and everyone that has been given a second chance. We love you!!!” Morgan, who also exec produces the comedy, said Monday in a statement.

Search Party, meanwhile, was created by Bliss, Rogers and Michael Showalter. The series, starring Alia Shawkat and Brandon Micheal Hall, grew double-digits in its second season and was TBS' top comedy on digital. The show has become a favorite among critics and has helped solidify TBS' new brand of comedy.

“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 vp programming for TBS. “We truly believe The Last O.G. and Search Party are two of the best shows on television.”
 
Search Party and The Last O.G. are part of a comedy roster at TBS that also includes Angie Tribeca, The Detour, People of Earth, Wrecked, The Guest Book and animated entries Final Space, American Dad and Tarantula
