KENAN’s sophomore season officially kicks off on Monday, January 3—the comedy aired a Christmas episode in December 2021—as Kenan (Kenan Thompson) decides to put himself out there, romantically, via a dating app.

“Messy. I’ll say that at the very least it’s messy,” Thompson teases in the video below. “He’s a little rusty, so he’s just got it by instinct, and having to kind of learn a lot on the fly, basically. So it’s funny to watch him kind of stumble through that a little bit.”

Kenan won’t be the only one struggling in “Dating App”: An unflattering photo of Tami (Taylor Louderman) prompts Mika (Kimrie Lewis) and Pam (Fortune Feimster) to go after the paparazzo who targeted their friend.

“You get to see some parts of Mika, quite literally, that you never would have expected,” Lewis previews. “The paparazzi, as paparazzi do, they take pictures of you when you’re not looking great. And they also get some some very, very up close and personal ones of Mika. So I can’t wait for folks to watch.”

As the show settles into its second year, “my biggest priority, I think, is to remember that it is a sitcom [and] it should be very funny a large majority of the time,” Thompson acknowledges.

The show naturally dove into more serious matters in season 1 (Thompson’s character is a recent widow, raising two young children), but the new year will play more into the lighter moments for the home and work families. “I’m fine dabbing into the emotional aspect of it and showing that dramatic chops, at times,” Thompson says. “But at the end of the day, we’re making a sitcom here. So that was my main reminder: Let’s not forget to be funny.”
