After eight years on NBC’s iconic sketch comedy show, Pete Davidson will reportedly be leaving ‘SNL’ this week.
A source familiar with the matter told Variety Friday that Pete Davidson is expected to make his grand exit after this Saturday’s Season 47 finale.
The website also reports that Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, and Kate McKinnon will be departing.
Reps for ‘Saturday Night Live’ and Pete Davidson did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Pete Davidson first joined the show in 2014 at the age of 20.
However, Pete Davidson has been dropping hints he’s been ready to leave the show for a while.
Pete Davidson told Charlamagne Tha God in February 2020 that Pete had been “having conversations” about when to quit the show, but he was unsure because he did not want to “leave too early.”
Fans then speculated that Season 46 could have been Pete Davidson’s last after telling THR he was ready to “hang up the jersey.”
“Yeah, I’m good. I’m surprised I made it to seven [seasons],” he said in May 2021.
Pete Davidson’s emotional speech during the Season 46 finale fueled the rumors even further.
“I’m very grateful to be here,” he said. “It’s been an honor to grow up in front of you guys.”
In October 2021, when the current season of ‘Saturday Night Live’ began, he admitted during a “Weekend Update” segment, “I can’t believe I’m back.”
