The duo is looking forward to other projects. The show will end on September 2015
Sketch comedy show “Key & Peele” is coming to an end after ongoing season. The performers of the show Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele told TheWrap in an interview.
“Key & Peele” is ending not because the broadcaster Comedy Central is pulling the plugs but it’s the Key and Peele himself who do not want to stretch the show into the next season. The duo is seemingly interested in other prospects.
“This is our final season – and it’s because of Comedy Central, it’s us,” said Keegan-Michael Key. “It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three year and then come back and do another movie.”
The fifth and the final season started on July 8 and will end on September this year. Three episodes have already been broadcasted while remaining eight episodes are also filmed and will air on its regular timings every Wednesday.
“Key & Peele” kicked off in January 2012. The first episode drew 2.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched premiere on Comedy Central in the past seven years. The show maintained fairly consistent rating throughout those years and received eight Primetime Emmy nominations this year.
When asked about the upcoming projects, Key said. “There will be Key & Peele productions coming up. We’re doing the reboot of “Police Academy”, and there is a TV show in the works that might do for the Comedy Central. There’s a lot of stuff we have cooking up.”
