Is Kenan
Leaving SNL?
“Saturday Night Live" has recently undergone a massive shake-up, with multiple beloved cast members leaving the show. Many wonder when Kenan Thompson will leave "SNL,” as he holds the distinction of being the longest-serving cast member, but according to Thompson, don't expect his exit any time soon.
When asked about this, Thompson responded, "I know we at least trying to get to the 50th [season], 'cause that's gonna be a special year, you know what I mean?” With that timeline in place, audiences can be reasonably confident the actor will stick around for at least three more years.
What happens after that is anyone's guess, but Thompson appears to enjoy making a career on the show. He explained, "If I felt like I was overstaying my welcome, or unwanted, then I would like to show myself the door, but yeah, it's also a one-of-a-kind place."
