Kenan Thompson can understand Saturday Night Live’s ending after 50 seasons.

The show’s producer Lorne Michaels has suggested that the show could end after the 50th anniversary in 2025, and Kenan is open to the idea.

Kenan said in an appearance on ‘Hell of a Week’: “Is this a rumour? Okay, okay, I need to start planning.

“There may be a lot of validity to that rumor because 50 is a good number to stop at. It’s an incredible package.”

Kennan, who has been a part of the comedy show since 2003 and is the longest-serving cast member in the program’s history, believes there will be no point in moving forward if Michaels is no longer involved.

Thompson revealed that he may understand whether NBC will cut the budget for the program if producers decide to walk away.

The comic said: “At the time, you couldn’t really do the same kind of show.

“They spend a lot of money on that show every week. It’s an expensive show, but it’s kind of unique. It’s the only one. You know, ‘Live from New York’.”

Kennan previously indicated that he would like to remain on the show until the show’s 50th season, following the departure of such stars as Pete Davidson and Kate McKinnon.

Asked if he plans to leave, he said: “I don’t mean I know.
