According to The Wrap, Key of Key & Peele said…

“This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us,” said Key. “It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.”

This is the fifth season of the sketch comedy and it will end in September.
