President Barack Obama’s win in the election has helped some other people as well.

Key & Peele

Sketch comedy “Key & Peele” has been renewed for a 13 episode third season by Comedy Central.

Stars Keegan- Michael Key and Jordan Peele (“MADtv”) also recently visited President Obama, who said he is a fan.

“Since Obama won re-election, it only seems fair that we would give Key & Peele another season,” Kent Alterman, the network’s head of original programming and production, said in a press release.

“We are so thrilled about the pick-up and want to thank Comedy Central for four more years!” the actors said in a press release. “Oh wait, what’s that? One more year? Oh … okay, that will work too.”

Key and Peele created the show, and they exec produce along with Ian Roberts, Jay Martel and Joel Zadak. “Key and Peele” debuted in January to an audience of 2.1 million viewers and has been a breakout hit since. One popular skit features President Obama and his anger translator Luther. The show features recorded skits and Key and Peele speaking before a live studio audience.

The season two finale airs Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
