Comedy Central picks up 'Key & Peele' for fourth season, signs deal to develop animated series

By Daniel S Levine,

Comedy Central has renewed Key & Peele for a fourth season and has expanded its partnership with the hilarious comedy duo. The team, which is made up of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, have also signed a development deal to turn one of their best known sketches into an animated series.

While season four was announced back in October, the network announced that it will expand the episode order to 22. That will also include two ‘greatest hits’ episodes, reports The Hollywood Reporter. It’s the biggest episode haul for the duo, as their first season was only eight shows. The second season included 10 and the third had 13.

Key & Peele has been one of Comedy Central’s rare long-running shows, earning 2 million viewers on average during season three. The duo previously worked together at MADtv and have created several viral sketches for their current show.

According to TheWrap, the duo will also develop an animated series based on the Vandaveon & Mike characters. They debuted on YouTube before being brought to Key & Peele.
