Is Pete Davidson leaving SNL?

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, Pete 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."

Commenting on how SNL creator, Lorne Michaels, gave him the opportunity to join the team, Davidson said Micheals told him during his first audition that he didn't think Davidson would be a right fit, but they could proceed anyway.

Davidson added: "And that's exactly what we did. That's why people who don't think I deserve this job shouldn't hate me since we have so much in common. Like, if anything, I should inspire hope that literally anyone could be on 'Saturday Night Live.'"

In an Instagram post, Davidson wrote: "We were together through the good and the bad, the happiest and the darkest of times. I owe Lorne Michaels and everyone at SNL my life. I'm so grateful and I wouldn't be here without them."

He also stated: "SNL is my home. I’m so happy and sad about tonight’s show."

"For so many reasons I can’t explain. Can’t wait to be back next year in a Mulaney musical number."

It was on May 20, 2022, a day before the season 47 finale, Variety exclusively reported that Davidson could be leaving SNL.

Although he will be leaving SNL, he is expected to maintain a relationship with Broadway Video, the production company responsible for SNL, the outlet reports.
