CHICAGO – Fans of the new sketch comedy show “Key & Peele” will be happy to hear that Comedy Central has renewed the show for a second season. The news came this morning from Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production at Comedy Central, who announced the news with a little joke of his own.

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.

The show, which is in the middle of its eight episode first season, was created by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who both star in the show. The second season will consist of 10 all-new episodes that will premiere in the fall of 2012.

We are honored, humbled and most importantly contractually obligated to deliver a second season to Comedy Central,” said Key and Peele.
