Carol Burnett is feeling grateful that she’s got “all my parts” and is able to work in her 90s.

At the Los Angeles premiere of Palm Royale on Thursday, the comedy legend spoke to ExtraTV about being a part of the upcoming star-studded Apple TV+ series. Ahead of her 91st birthday next month, she admitted that she’s hoping to celebrate by simply continuing to work.

“Well, I hope there's a second season, you know, then that'll keep me working, which I like,” she told the outlet. “Yes, as long as I have fun, and that's what I want.”

“I always approach it as something new that I've never done before, so I'm just happy to be working and that I've got all my parts,” Burnett quipped. “I have my hips and my knees — and I think my brain — so as long as I can keep that up and work, then I want to work.”

Similarly, the Carol Burnett Show star said she was feeling good following her 90th birthday last year. Celebrating the milestone with a NBC television special, Burnett spoke to PEOPLE about her incredible nine decades of life.

"I can't wrap my head around it,” she said at the time. “I still feel like I'm about 11, but I'm amazed. It sure went fast. But I'm glad because I've got all my parts — got my hips, I got my knees and I've got my brain, so I'm happy about that."

The award-winning comedian, whose career has spanned decades in television, movies and theater, told PEOPLE that she wanted her legacy to be that "I made people laugh, made them feel good when they might have been down."

"In my fan mail, many say it was the only time the family would get together, to watch and laugh. And that sometimes they were lonesome and were cheered up by our show. That's a good feeling," Burnett said.
