"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," said Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production at the network.
Added stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele: "We are honored, humbled and most importantly contractually obligated to deliver a second season to Comedy Central."
The 10-episode second season of Key & Peele is slated to premiere in the fall.
