Kenan Thompson Leaving 'SNL' After This Season? (Report)

Kenan Thompson Leaving 'SNL' After This Season? (Report)

Kenan Thompson is reportedly set to leave Saturday Night Live after the upcoming 2014-15 season, according to TMZ.

The 36-year-old comedian had hoped to leave the long-running series after the previous season, but he signed on for one more after creator Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on in the midst of a big cast turnover.

Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers have all left the show in the last couple years, leaving Kenan as the longest-running cast member on the series.

UPDATE: A spokesperson for SNL told BuzzFeed: “This report is inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”
