Key and Peele Announce Final Season

Comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will not return for another season of “Key and Peele” on Comedy Central after the end of season five.

It is not unheard of that comedians change the way the distribute content. Lately, a lot of comedians have been transitioning to other platforms, like Netflix, to allow for more creative room. Hopefully Key and Peele will continue to deliver amazing content for a long time to come. 

This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.

There will be Key and Peele productions coming up. We’re doing the reboot of ‘Police Academy,’ and there’s a TV show in the works that me might do for Comedy Central. There’s lots of stuff we have cooking up.

“Key and Peele” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
