What does Saturday Night Live look like without long-time star Kenan Thompson?

Luckily, it looks like we won’t have to find out anytime soon.

The SNL veteran, who first appeared on the sketch comedy series in 2003, is the show’s longest-running cast member. He’s also got a ton of projects in the pipeline which has caused some worry amongst die-hard fans. After all, good things must always come to an end.

But fear not comedy-lovers because Thompson has no plans of quitting his day job anytime soon.

The comedian stopped by Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show to talk about his Emmy win last year, his love for tequila, and his other NBC show with Chrissy Teigen, but the pair didn’t get far without first establishing just how long Thompson plans to be a key player on the late-night comedy series. After being quizzed on whether he’ll be around for a new presidential impersonator, Thompson revealed he hasn’t even thought about leaving the show.

“It’s the best job in the world,” Thompson said after confirming he’ll be around until at least 2020. “I can’t see myself just walking away from it like that.”
