NEW YORK, September 8, 2014 - Comedy Central is bringing back the sketch-comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for a fourth season of the hit five-time Emmy(R)-nominated series "Key & Peele." The first of 11 new episodes debuts Wednesday, September 24 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, after the 18th season premiere of "South Park." In the new season, "Key & Peele" brings to life all-new characters and adventures, once again offering up a hilarious look at the world by utilizing the stars' lively chemistry and smart observations.
Several fan-favorites including Wendell, the East-West Bowl stars and Meegan and Andre will return along with new, entertaining personalities guaranteed to make you laugh. "Key & Peele" recently received its first Peabody(R) Award for "excellence in storytelling and breaking new ground even as they lay claim to all of comedy's traditions."

In the premiere episode, Keegan and Jordan try to determine who is an alien and who is a human by asking race-related questions in the midst of an alien apocalypse. In another sketch, a gay man fields insensitive questions from a family adjusting to the idea of their male cousin marrying a man.
"Key & Peele" features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes filmed sketches to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it's satirizing the President, black Republicans, or taking on religion, "Key & Peele" showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
Leading up to the premiere, Comedy Central will provide viewers with weekly digital exclusives starring fan favorite and Streamy Award-winning characters Vandaveon and Mike on cc.com and the Comedy Central YouTube channel.
