Comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have confirmed that they will not return for a sixth season of sketch comedy “Key and Peele” on Comedy Central. The show is currently in the midst of its fifth season which premiered earlier this month and ends in September.
Key tells The Wrap: “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.”
Key adds that though their titular show is over, the two of them are far from finished: “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.”
