Comedy Central renewed Key and Peele, the hit skit show. It was announced today by Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, Comedy Central. The second season of “Key & Peele,” which is created by and stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, will consist of 10 episodes and premiere in fall 2012.
“Because ‘Key & Peele’ has been so immediately and universally well received, I was worried if we didn’t give the show a quick pick up, people might accuse me of being racist,” said Alterman.
“We are honored, humbled and most importantly contractually obligated to deliver a second season to Comedy Central,” said Key and Peele.
Scoring COMEDY CENTRAL’s best launch since 2009, “Key & Peele” drew 2.1 million total viewers to its series premiere and also resonated among young men, earning a 2.6 men 18-34 rating and a 3.3 men 18-24 rating to finish as #1 in its time slot with both demographics across all of television. For the night, the inaugural episode of the new hit series finished behind only “Tosh.0” in all of television for Tuesday Prime among men 18-24. In addition, #KeyAndPeele was the #1 trending topic on Twitter during its premiere play.
That´s reason enough as to earn Key and Peele getting renewed.
