Well, bad news for Comedy Central's sketch comedy lineup; good news for its business-improvement, pseudo-prank, reality comedy lineup.

According to The Wrap, the recently Emmy-nominated Key & Peele is drawing to a permanent close after the current, fifth season ends this September. Said Keegan-Michael Key: "This is our final season - and it's not because of Comedy Central, it's us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart."

Key and Jordan Peele are currently shooting the stolen cat movie Keanu, and their plan is to continue to collaborate on film projects every three years. Though they may soon depart television, the echo of Xmus Jaxon Flaxon-Waxon will long resonate.

Meanwhile, Nathan Fielder tweets that while the doors of Dumb Starbucks are forever shut, his Nathan for You will be back on October 15. As he adds, "Put it in your calendar. I did!":
