Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, and Kyle Mooney are all expected to leave ‘SNL’ following the May 21 finale, according to reports.
Pete’s quitting comes after 7 months of dating Kim Kardashian, their romance is stirring the news for quite some time now.
Pete Davidson’s Journey with the SNL
Pete first appeared on SNL in 2014, when he was only 20 years old, and he’s been a regular ever since! Throughout the sketches, he has delighted audiences in a variety of ways. Chad, the goofy and clueless figure, is one of his most beloved characters.
With his very amusing Lil Doo Doo, he’s spoofing a slew of rap musicians, but he’s also performed musical parodies of songs like Eminem’s “Without Me” and Marc Cohn’s “Walking In Memphis.” He’s also used appearances on “Weekend Update” to showcase his stand-up comedic chops.
Davidson didn’t appear a lot this season and the rumors of him quitting SNL have been going on for about 3 months now.
If Pete is truly quitting the show, now that Kim and Pete might spend more time focused on their next steps. It might also indicate a renewed concentration on films, such as his upcoming romantic comedy ‘Meet Cute‘. He might also concentrate on his stand-up comedy. He recently debuted a new act in which he joked about his new relationship with Kim and her ex-boyfriend Kanye West.
Who are the other cast members expected to leave the show
Kate McKinnon, who has been with SNL for a decade, is also expected to leave. She’s yet another rising talent with a slew of future projects, including the Greta Gerwig Barbie film.
Aidy Bryant is next, who debuted on Saturday Night Live in 2012. In recent years, she’s also taken time away from the show to film her Hulu project Shrill. Kyle Mooney, who joined SNL in 2013 and played Johnny Depp in the infamous Depp/Heard trial spoof last week, is the final cast member anticipated to go.
