Kenan Thompson is finally heading to prime time, but don’t expect him to leave “SNL” anytime soon.
The show’s longest-reigning cast member will star in “The Kenan Show,” produced by “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels.
He’ll play a widowed dad, with Andy Garcia as his father-in-law.
Insiders told the Hollywood Reporter that Thompson — who’s closing out his 16th season on “SNL” — is expected to return to the NBC sketch show next year, although it’s unclear in what capacity.
Meanwhile, his “SNL” castmate Aidy Bryant will film Season 2 of her Hulu show “Shrill” during summer hiatus.
