Key & Peele

In addition to seeing the previously-announced fourth season of their hit comedy series expanded to 22 episodes, including two "best of" shows, Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have signed a new development deal with Comedy Central has signed for what will be an animated series based on the duo's “Vandaveon & Mike” characters from their YouTube videos.

In the YouTube videos, the comedic pair review episodes of Key & Peele as their alter-egos Vandaveon Huggins and Mike Taylor in segments called "Critiquer’s Corner." 

The animated project will place them in middle school, as 12-year-old hall monitors.

The 22 episodes will by far be the largest number for a single season for the sketch show. 

The third season of Key & Peele, which wrapped in December, averaged 2 million total viewers.
