Peele and Key on reuniting, as demons, in 'Wendell & Wild'
TORONTO — (AP) — It's seven years almost to day since the last episode of “Key & Peele” aired, but Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are once again riffing together. “Wendell & Wild," which Netflix will release in theaters Oct. 21 and begin streaming Oct. 28, is an event for a couple reasons. Since “Key & Peele” concluded in 2015, Peele has, of course, embarked on an ambitious and acclaimed filmmaking career with a trilogy of mind-bending thrillers in “Get Out,” “Us” and this year's “Nope." “It was like a blur,” Key says of the five seasons of “Key & Peele.” “There’s a general feeling that there was passion, that there was focus, that there was love. The best lines are things they just thought of spontaneously.”Peele actually began working with Selick before the end of “Key & Peele."wftv.com
