A series that has earned a strong fan base on cable is coming to an end. Variety reports that Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele” will wrap at the end of season five.
The sketch comedy show, which stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, debuted in 2012. Season five rolled out earlier this month and will wrap up in September.
The program “received seven Emmy nominations this year, including noms for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nod for Key,” Variety notes. “The pair’s contributions helped Comedy Central rack up 25 Emmy noms for the upcoming ceremony.”
The show’s stars, and not Comedy Central, reportedly pulled the plug on the series, as both Key and Peele have plans to pursue other projects.
