The critically acclaimed Comedy Central series Key & Peele will soon end, Keegan-Michael Key announced. Its current season will be its last.

The show’s co-creator shared the news with The Wrap, explaining, “It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart.” He said he and co-star Jordan Peele still hope to work together, potentially on movie projects, and that he could see them being “[like] 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.”

The show was nominated for several Emmy awards this year, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Key.
