Key & Peele has been ‘cancelled’, but not Comedy Central, but the stars themselves.
The duo have decided to end the show after the current fifth season, which runs into September, ruling out a sixth season.
The announcement comes fairly late in the day given that we’re well into Season 5, but whether ‘cancelled’ or ‘ended’, co-creator and star Keegan-Michael Key says the time was right, per TheWrap:
“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.
I’m thinking we could do that every three years – take a year, go bang out a movie. That’s the plan right now.”
