The show airs on Comedy Central & provides a satirical & funny perspective of a variety of situations.
According to the Wrap, Keegan said that this is our final season and it is not because of Comedy Central, it is us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together & apart. He compare it to Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another film. He further added that there might be ‘Key and Peele’ productions coming up. We are 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.
This year, the show racked up seven Emmy nominations including, Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and an Outstanding Supporting Actor in the Comedy Series nod for Keegan. Paramount has decided to take their sketch ‘Substitute Teacher’ to the next level and are developing a show titled the same.
