Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon And Others Set To Leave 'SNL'

Saturday Night Live apparently isn’t immune to the Great Resignation, either.

Cast members Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and Kyle Mooney are set to leave the show after tonight’s 47th season finale, Variety reported yesterday based on an insider source. McKinnon and Bryant have the longest tenure of the four, having joined in 2012. Mooney joined in 2013, and Davidson in 2014.

McKinnon is well-known for her impressions on the show — anyone from former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani to Tiger King star Carole Baskin, whom she plays in the Peacock series Joe vs. Carole. Bryant has also shown exceptional range on SNL, shapeshifting from Ted Cruz to Mother Earth herself.

Davidson has been in the news more for his personal life than for SNL as of late, having started a relationship with Kim Kardashian. Reportedly, however, the comedian is apparently going to appear in the SNL finale while Kardashian is at her sister Kourtney’s wedding in Italy.

Mooney, meanwhile, recently created a new Netflix comedy series, Saturday Morning All Star Hits.

NBC has yet to comment on the departures with publications including Variety and Deadline. If the rumors are true, though, we may be seeing lots of new faces when SNL returns in the fall.
