Created by John Carcieri and Jordan Peele, ‘The Last O.G.’ essays the story of Tray, a man who is surprised to find his old neighborhood in a different shape after returning from 15 years of imprisonment. On top of that, he realizes that the love of his life has married another man, who has been helping her raise Tray’s children. Originally premiered on March 31, 2018, the comedy show has spawned four seasons to date. It kicked off on an interesting note, which has helped attract a wide fan base over time. And if you’re hoping to see the fifth round, here is everything we can tell you!
The Last O.G. Season 5 Release Date
‘The Last O.G.’ season 4 released on October 26, 2021, on TBS, and concluded on December 21, 2021. The fourth season has ten episodes that run for about 22 minutes each.
With regard to the fifth season, here’s all that we know. The network has not said anything about the future of the show post-season 4. It is to be noted that the series has a very complicated history of production. It was initially signed up by FX but then ultimately went to TBS after the former dropped it. Moreover, the third season of the show never made it to Netflix, unlike its first two installments.
The streamer usually licenses shows that are still on air. Until the series has concluded or canceled, Netflix keeps it in its catalog. So, this abrupt decision to not house the third season came as a shock to fans. It could have also hinted at the potential cancellation of the series in the future. However, the show returned with another edition, and fans are speculating whether a fifth one is in the making. As far as ratings are concerned, season 4 of ‘The Last O.G.’ averaged 0.14 in the 18-49 demographic and drew in 494,000 viewers.
If we compare the latest season to its predecessor, it marks a 43% decrease in the demo and a 33% dip in viewership for the live+same day ratings. In case its performance affects the decision of the network or the creators, we might not get another season. If it doesn’t, we can hope for another round after all. Once the news is confirmed and production for the potential season 5 is completed, the network will roll out new episodes. Keeping everything in mind, we expect ‘The Last O.G.’ season 5 to release sometime in Q4 2022.
