‘Key & Peele’ ending after five seasons.

“Key & Peele,” the Emmy-nominated Comedy Central sketch show created by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, will conclude its run after its current fifth season ends, say multiple media reports including The Wrap: “‘This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us,’ said Key. ‘It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. Co-creator and star Keegan-Michael Key told The Wrap in an interview published Saturday why he and partner Jordan Peele have decided to end the series. “I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. The show, which airs on Comedy Central, was nominated for seven Emmy Awards this year, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Key. The show also won a Peabody Award in 2013, and Key performed his popular character of President Obama’s “anger translator” along with the president himself earlier this year. That’s the plan right now.'” The show, co-written by the two African-American comedians, gained fame for several sketches but particularly for a running gag in which Peele portrayed President Barack Obama and Key as his alter ego “Luther,” the president’s “anger translator.” Key showed up as Luther alongside the president at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in April.

The pair have a number of projects for film and television in the works, both together and separately, including “Keanu,” a comedy they recently shot together, and a reboot of “Police Academy.” One fan compared the comedians’ departure to that of Dave Chappelle, another star who abruptly walked away from Comedy Central when his show was one of the network’s most beloved offerings.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "Key and Peele will still do sports sketches, right?".
