"Let’s goooo!!!!"

Kenan & Kel star and Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson is releasing his own sitcom next month.

Kenan will air on NBC in mid-February, focusing on Thompson as he plays a single dad raising two kids.

The official synopsis for Kenan reads: “Raising two kids is a three-man job in this unconventional family comedy.


“Kenan Thompson stars as a single dad who’s trying to balance his career as the host of a popular morning show in Atlanta with raising his two spirited daughters – and while his father-in-law Rick (Don Johnson) and his brother Gary (SNL’s Chris Redd) always try to ‘help’, they usually find a way to make things a whole lot harder!”

Thompson shared a first look at the show on his Instagram account, with a first trailer. “It’s almost time!! #Kenan comes to @NBC in just 1️⃣ month from today!!! Tune in Feb. 16th @ 8:30!!!! Let’s goooo!!!! Plenty more posts to come!!”

Kenan will also be led by SNL creator Lorne Michaels, who will serve as an executive producer.
