Departure of Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant

Live from New York, it’s not Pete Davidson.

Change is in the air: a whole lot of SNL the cast would leave after tonight’s Season 47 finale.

To some extent, the cast shakeup was a long time coming — creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels described 2022 as a “year of change” for the show, which currently has its biggest cast ever.

The first face to leave is none other than Pete Davidson, who has only appeared in a few skits this season. Of course, Pete joined SNL at the age of 20 – making him one of the youngest cast members of all time – in 2014.

Kate McKinnon is also expected to leave, having first joined SNL a decade ago. She’s another breakout star with a whole bunch of upcoming projects – including the Greta Gerwig Barbie film.

Next up is Aidy Bryant, who has also joined SNL in 2012. She has also taken some time off the show in recent years to film her Hulu show Acute.

The latest cast member set to leave is Kyle Mooney, who joined for the first time SNL in 2013 – and portrayed Johnny Depp in the controversial Depp/Heard lawsuit skit last week.
