Now, the Saturday Night Live alum will sit down for his first interview since the accident occurred this past June.
On Monday June 1st, the actor and his lawyer Benedict Morelli will appear on the Today show for a live interview with Matt Lauer at Rockefeller Plaza.
The 46-year-old has been out of the public eye since the accident, as he was recovering from severe head trauma, a broken leg, and broken ribs after a Walmart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying the comedian and two others.
Morgan released this statement on Wednesday about the settlement:
UPDATE 5:37 PM EST: Tracy Morgan released an official statement on the settlement Wednesday, saying:
"Wal-Mart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families. I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."
On Wednesday, the superstore announced that it had settled a lawsuit with Morgan's representatives.
The actual terms of the settlement are confidential, but according to Walmart CEO Greg Foran, the settlement that ended the litigation was "amicable."
Foran had this to say in a statement from the company:
Keep making progress, Tracy Morgan! You can do it!
On Monday, the comedian was spotted at the Bergen Town Center Outlets in New Jersey shopping with his fiancée Megan Wollover and their daughter.
The 46-year-old was seen walking with the assistance of a cane, which is no different from his last public appearance in February, where he used the helper while entering a rehab facility.
Ever since his car accident last June — where a Walmart truck driver hit his limo, killing friend James McNair and leaving him with brain and limb injuries — the 30 Rock star has been slowly but surely making improvements with his recovery.
As we reported last month, the conglomerate paid $10 million dollars to McNair's children, Jamel and Danita.
Morgan has sued the company for "careless and negligent ownership and operation of its motor vehicle." In response, the retail corporation countersued claiming he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
Even with his condition, the funnyman is determined to get back into comedy.
We can't wait for the day when Tracy will make us laugh again.

Tracy Morgan will be back in the spotlight in no time!
Last June, the 46-year-old suffered brain and limb injuries when a Walmart truck driver hit his limo, killing his friend James McNair.
Eight months later, the comedian is showing progress!
On Wednesday, the 30 Rock star was seen walking into of a rehab facility in New Jersey. Although he needed the assistance of a cane, he was seen standing up, showing improvement in his condition.
To make up for Morgan's unfortunate absence, Tina and Alec gave an emotional and funny shout-out to their pal.
Listen to the sweet words (below)!
We hope this development gives James McNair's family some sense of peace.
After it was discovered that the Walmart employee was at fault for the crash due to speeding, the McNair family won a settlement from the company.
While the settlement figure wasn't disclosed, McNair's loved ones are happy with the outcome.
An attorney for the family said:
As 2014 draws to a close, now is the perfect time to look back and reflect on the biggest pop culture phenomenons of the year.
And what better way to do that than to check out what people have been searching on Google???
Yup, the popular search engine has officially released their annual "Year in Search" data for the world to admire, and Kim Kardashian obviously showed up a LOT on their lists.
But she actually WASN'T the most Googled celebrity of the year!!
