[ # ] Are Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd leaving SNL?
February 23rd, 2021 under Kenan Thompson, NBC, Saturday Night Live


Last week, Kenan Thompson’s NBC show debuted to really good numbers? So does that mean that he and his Saturday Night Live and Kenan co-star Chris Redd are ready to leave New York for Hollywood full time?

“I think we are living in a different time. There used to be a time when people would leave the show and go into their careers,” Kenan said at the NBC TCA Winter Press Day. “But I’m of the same kind of thinking, basically, where I think you can, kind of, do both as long as you can, and then the departure comes in a natural sort of way. Then so be it or whatever.”

Redd agreed, “Well, not much goes into it because I haven’t decided to leave either. So, I’m just having fun being able to create with one of my best friends and also be able to still go and do sketch, and I love sketch. So, I don’t really see it as an exit strategy. I just, kind of, see it as another way to create. So that’s the best answer I think I can give you.”

I say this is great news. SNL can lose a lot of their Not-Ready-For-Primetime-Players, but they cannot afford to lose the two that are working in primetime.

Now, let’s talk about their primetime show that airs Tuesdays at 8:30p. If you are not watching Kenan, then you are missing out on the funniest new comedy of the year. Kenan deserves all the success he gets, and this is a sitcom that is worthy of him.
