Comedy Central’s ‘Key & Peele’ Ending Five-Season Run In September.

The show’s co-creator shared the news with The Wrap, explaining, “It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart.” He said he and co-star Jordan Peele still hope to work together, potentially on movie projects, and that he could see them being “[like] Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor.

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have announced that the currently airing fifth season of their hit Comedy Central sketch show, Key & Peele, will be its last.Fans of Key and Peele might need an anger translator after today’s news: Comedy Central’s Peabody-Award winning, Emmy-nominated sketch series will end a five-season run with its final episodes in September. “Don’t miss the last 8 episodes!,” tweeted Jordan Peele Saturday. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.” The show was nominated for several Emmy awards this year, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Key. Jordan Peele plays the lone young black man in his very peppy, very white, a cappella ensemble, until an interloping musician (Keegan-Michael Key) comes in and threatens to steal Peele’s group out from under him. “Do you have any idea how long it took for me to infiltrate this group?” Peele asks Key with a scowl after practice.

The comics, who spent six seasons together on Fox’s MadTV before creating their self-titled program for Comedy Central in 2012, are among Comedy Central’s buzziest non-talk-show stars, second perhaps only to Amy Schumer. A lot of the comedy comes simply from how the two manage to deliver a master class in side-eye in between bouts of 8-part harmonies and “soulful” doo-wop fills, but the surprise button at the end (which we won’t spoil) casts the whole sketch in a new light. There’s no word yet on whether they’ll also put together a movie that’s just a bunch of football players saying their increasingly ridiculous names for 90 minutes straight, but, y’know, fingers crossed.
