'Key & Peele' To End After Fifth Season

After receiving multiple Emmy nominations earlier this month, Key & Peele's co-creator Keegan-Michael Key announced that the current fifth season of the series will be its last.

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to talk about the comedy show's distinct handling of sensitive topics like race and sexuality, and what its end – along with Jon Stewart’s and Stephen Colbert’s departures – spell for Comedy Central.
