Key & Peele

The laughs from Key & Peele will soon be coming to an end.

Sketch comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will end their five season run on Comedy Central after its current season, the network confirmed.

“This is our final season — and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us,” Key told The Wrap. “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.”

If fans are worried about what’s next for the duo, Key teased fans with a few things to expect in the near future. In an interview, Key they recently shot the comedy Keanu, co-written by Peele and directed by frequent Key & Peele director Peter Atencio. Key also added that in the coming months he will appear in a film, while Peele will direct a self-written horror film.

“There will be Key & Peele productions coming up,” he said. “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.”

The show won a Peabody Award in 2013 and received a handful of Emmy nominations this year, including Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Key.

Season five of Key & Peele is currently airing and will run into September.
