Comedy Central renews ‘Key & Peele’ for a second season

After telecasting just two episodes, Comedy Central has renewed its new sketch-comedy series “Key & Peele” for a 10-episode second season.

So far so good.

“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,” Comedy Central’s head of original programming, Kent Alterman, said in Tuesday’s announcement.

Because the two stars — Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele — are black men, you see.

“We are honored, humbled and most importantly contractually obligated to deliver a second season to Comedy Central,” the two men said in their canned statement about the pick-up, taking the high road.

The show launched two weeks ago behind “Tosh.0” and snared about 2 million viewers.
