So sad for Key & Peele fans!
The current season of the hit show on Comedy Central will be the last one, according to Keegan-Michael Key.

Speaking to reporters about the decision to wrap up the show, Key said:
"It was time for us to explore other things, together and apart. 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."
The sketch comedy, in its fifth season, will run into September and then be done, Key added. All of the episodes for the current season have already been flimed.
Fortunately, though, neither Key nor Jordan Peele will be going too far in the near future, with Key relaying that things were already in the works:
"There will be Key & Peele productions coming up. We're doing the reboot of ‘Police Academy,' and there's a TV show in the works that we might do for Comedy Central. There's lots of stuff we have cooking up."
So sad for such a funny show to end! But at least they've got more stuff coming for us to enjoy!
What do U think — will U miss Key & Peele?!
