Pete Davidson Is Leaving Saturday Night Live!

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson will be leaving after eight seasons. Davidson wrote on Instagram on Friday, prior to Saturday’s season finale: “It is crazy to think that today that I will be doing my last one.”.

While the actor does not have his own Twitter account, Dave Sirus, the writer for “Saturday Night Live,” posted a video on his page showing him hugging Jerrod Carmichael. As part of the message, there is a picture of Davidson and Carmichael accompanied by a brief caption.

It has been eight seasons since Pete Davidson took the stage on Saturday Night Live for his final performance.

 As soon as several episodes of ‘The Kardashians’ started missing early in the year, the comedian had sparked exit rumors amid his ongoing romantic relationship with Kim Kardashian.

Davidson Releases Statement Regarding ‘SNL’ Departure

It appears that one of the many things Pete wrote in a lengthy note about his departure was a clip of him hugging comedian Jerrod Carmichael which was posted by his friend, SNL  Dave Sirus, on May 21 on Instagram.

Davidson writes that he was 20 years old when he got the show, and he had no idea what he was doing since he had no experience in performance.

It’s true that I don’t know, but I didn’t then either.” In my early days, I wasn’t much of a sketch performer but rather a standup comedian.

The fact that I knew I would never be able to compete or even go toe to toe with such a seasoned veteran as Kenan Thompson or Kate McKinnon had me extremely scared at the very thought of making such a contribution to and/or performing on such a venerable and historical platform.

According to Variety and Deadline, the show is known for changing its cast every year during its annual hiatus from the air during the summer.

Along with Pete, it is also worth noting that Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney have left the show in recent weeks.

A Life & Style representative neither responded immediately to a request for comment from Pete nor from NBC. However, it’s quite easy to guess that Pete Davidson is leaving the show.

SNL’s Pete was one of the youngest members of the cast

It was in 2014, at just 20 years of age, that the People’s Choice Award nominee made his debut on the comical series during its 40th season.

In spite of being relatively unknown in the beginning, Pete appeared in many sketches, generally in scenes alongside castmates Colin Jost and Michael Che in the legendary “Weekend Update” segments.

The comedian also performed many portrayals of famous figures during his career, such as former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in addition to singing and dancing.

Moreover, he was the author of a popular fictional character named Chad, who was always calm, no matter how turbulent the situation was.

One of his most memorable performances was when he portrayed Aladdin alongside Kim, who performed Jasmine, when she was given the opportunity to host the show for the first time in October 2021.

Final Word

It is perhaps safe to say that Davidson is best known for his role on Saturday Night Live, but he has also appeared in a number of feature films, such as the A24 film “Bodies, Bodies, Bodies” and the show “Set It Off.”.

The Peacock network has announced that Davidson will executive produce and both star and executive produce a new streaming show called “Bupkis”.

According to a spokesperson of Peacock, Pete Davidson’s original viewpoint, as inextricably infused with the name of the show, is the same as “In this film, the real-life of Pete Davidson is heightened and fictionalized as much as possible.” 

The series is described as “Pete Davidson’s life is explored in a funny and at times absurd way, infused with many silly elements that are derived from Pete’s own original point of view.”

Steven Winter is a graduate of the University of Kansas. He holds a diploma in History so, naturally, Winter likes to visit ancient ruins, trying to picture long-gone civilizations roaming around the stone streets. He has visited over half a dozen countries but considers his 2013 trip to China and India where he was able to spend some time with Buddhist monks a life changing experience.
