'Key and Peele' have quickly become of the most watched and viral comedians Comedy Central ever featured since Dave Chappelle's departure. On Comedy Central's YouTube page, 'Key and Peele' videos have the most views. But, sadly this may be the last time we will ever see Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele on Comedy Central. According to Variety, the comedy duo are calling it quits after the end of season five. Key and Peele Final Season “This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us,” Key told the Wrap. “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.” “There will be Key and Peele productions coming up,” Key said. “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.” Season five of "Key and Peele", which premiered earlier this month, will end in September. The sketch series, which started in 3 years ago, received several Emmy nominations this year, including nominations for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nod for Key. 'Key and Peele' helped Comedy Central rack up 25 Emmy noms for the upcoming ceremony. Currently, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are filming in New Orleans their new movie 'Keanu'.
