Will 'Kenan' Return for Season 3?

Although the final two episodes of Kenan Season 2 have yet to air, we had to check Kenan's Instagram to see if he had posted any details about the possibility of Kenan Season 3. As of Jan. 31, there is no word from the man himself or NBC about a Season 3 renewal. But don't panic yet, Kenan fans! According to a Deadline report, the first season of Kenan was NBC's 4th best digital comedy launch to date! Per the same report, the very first episode of Kenan was watched by 7.4 million viewers.

If the show has continued with strong ratings overall like its first season, we have no doubt that NBC will renew Kenan for a third season. However, there's still no official word yet on a renewal. NBC announced the Season 2 renewal after Season 1 finished airing, so here's to hoping that the network follows that same pattern with good season renewal news!
