Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have made a habit out of going big in the season premieres of Key & Peele—last season’s Les Miserables sketch being no exception. This year, it seems the comedy duo has decided to take on an alien apocalypse in the first episode.

Titled “Alien Imposters,” Key and Peele fight their way through a war-torn city that’s been ravaged by an alien invasion in this clip. Along the way they run into a number of survivors, but have to determine whether they’re actual humans or aliens in disguise.

The best solution for telling humans and aliens apart? Why, by finding out if they adhere to racist stereotypes of course. An old man, a blond girl, and a redneck are just a few of the possible suspects put through the pair’s rigorous testing process.

Key & Peele returns for its fourth season on Wednesday, Sept. 24, but until then, fans can tide themselves over with a music video bringing together some of the show’s most memorable characters.
