Update: Kenan Thompson Is Not Leaving Saturday Night Live

Rumors were swirling on Monday that Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson would leave the show after this upcoming season, but NBC has already released a contrary statement. According to an SNL spokesperson, the report is "incredibly inaccurate. The season hasn't even started and cast decisions aren't made until the end of the season." Of the current cast, he's been on the show the longest, with the new season being his 11th. While it's true that Pete Davidson and Michael Che were added to the cast this year, we're still happy to be holding on to some veterans, Thompson included.
