Do Kenan and Mika get together in Season 2 of 'Kenan'? Kimrie Lewis dishes on possible showmance.

Season 1 of NBC's Kenan laid the groundwork for these comedic characters, and now our favorite group will be put in "weird positions," Kimrie told Distractify.

"For me, that's just the most fun because Mika ... can be so straight-laced and professional," Kimrie dished to us. "In Season 2, we get to see her kind of have a love life. She dips into dating a little bit," the star says, adding, "But at the same time, you'll see her try to balance that work-personal life, which, as I'm sure you know, for a lot of women trying to do that juggle ... it's challenging."

With both Kenan and Mika exploring relationships in Season 2, is it possible that the two will get together?

"I think there's definitely going to be some long stares there," Kimrie said. "I don't know if it'll be for all the reasons that you might have."

She continued, "She starts to date. I don't know if she's great at that ... The struggle is real for her in Season 2."
