Published: Thursday, March 13, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

LOS ANGELES – Comedy Central has expanded the coming fourth season of its hit series “Key & Peele” and given its creators, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, a development deal to spin off their “Vandaveon & Mike” characters into an animated series.

The “Key & Peele” extension brings to 22 the number of episodes ordered for the fourth season, plus two “best of” installments.

The animated project will feature the Vandaveon and Mike characters from Key and Peele’s “Critiquers Corner” sketches – 12-year-old hall monitors navigating their way through middle school.

The third season of “Key & Peele” concluded in December. The duo have also been cast as recurring characters in FX’s upcoming drama “Fargo.”
