Kenan Thompson might not be leaving Studio 8H after all!
We reported earlier how the veteran cast member was apparently leaving after the upcoming season of SNL, but that's apparently NOT the case, according to an SNL spokesperson.
Here's what the rep had to say about the reports of Kenan leaving:
"[T]his report is inaccurate as the season hasn't even started and cast decisions aren't made until the end of the season."
Well, there you have it. This rumor has been shut down….kind of.
Sure, cast decisions aren't made until the end of the season whether the show wants to keep someone on for another season or not, but if Kenan has already personally decided to leave, that would be out of the show's control.
We think this is a very well worded answer, but for now, we'll keep optimistic that he'll decide to stay on.
