You can thank President Barack Obama for this one, Key & Peele fans. Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series starring the multifaceted duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele has been renewed for a third season. Thirteen more episodes of political incorrectness await in the fall of 2013.

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

Key and Peele recently visited fan President Obama and regularly impersonate him in their skits. “We are so thrilled about the pick-up and want to thank Comedy Central for four more years!” Key and Peele said in a press release. “Oh wait, what’s that? One more year? Oh … okay, that will work too.”

The show’s season finale will air tomorrow at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.
