Kenan Thompson is the longest standing cast member on “Saturday Night Live” ever, with 18 seasons. And he plans to keep going indefinitely.
Kenan said, “I keep saying I’m trying to get to 20 [seasons]…I don’t really know what to do at this point, as far as leaving is concerned. Like, why should I ever have to leave?”
The only way he’d leave is if he felt he was taking up someone else’s spot or if he got fired.
So we can pretty much count on seeing Kenan this fall. Can’t say the same for others like Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, or Cecily Strong, who have yet to confirm their future on the show.
