Those leaving SNL include:

Pete Davidson

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, Davidson confirmed he would be leaving SNL.

During his last segment on SNL's Weekend Update, he stated: "I never imagined this would be my life. Back then, I was just a skinny kid that no one knew which race I was."

He continued: "And now everyone knows I'm White because I became hugely successful while barely showing up to work. Look at me now, I'm aging like an old banana."
