Pete Davidson confirmed leaving. "saturday night live"

It has been confirmed that Pete Davidson is leaving “Saturday Night Live” after eight seasons. “It’s crazy to think I’m going to play my last game today,” Davidson said on Instagram ahead of the season finale on Saturday.

Davidson doesn’t have an Instagram account of his own, but he posted the message via Dave Sirus, who writes for “Saturday Night Live.” The message was accompanied by a video of Davidson hugging Jerrod Carmichael.

“I was 20 when I got the show and I had no idea what I was doing,” Davidson said. “Not yet, but especially at the time. I wasn’t really a sketch performer and I just stood there. I was Superman because I knew I couldn’t follow Kenan Thompson or Kate McKinnon, and I couldn’t keep up with Kate McKinnon. I’m afraid to figure out what I can bring or what I can do for a respected show and platform.”

Davidson first joined “Saturday Night Live” in 2014 at the age of 20, making him one of the youngest cast members in the show’s history.

in 2020 interview Davidson said he didn’t even know SNL was still airing when he was asked to audition on “CBS Sunday Morning.” However, the comedian and actor did acknowledge the variety shows that made his career.

“I started taking it seriously as a cartoon,” Davidson said. “It really changed my life.”

On Saturday, Davidson said, “I owe my life to Lorne Michaels and everyone on SNL. I am so grateful and I wouldn’t be here without them. Even if it wasn’t, I thank you for always putting my back on me and watching over me.’

He also met current girlfriend, aspiring lawyer and tycoon, Kim Kardashian, after hosting a long-distance sketch show in 2021, according to the most recent season of “The Kardashians.”

In addition to his roles on SNL, Davidson has appeared in several feature films, including “Set It Off”, “The King of Staten Island” and the A24 horror film “Bodies, Bodies, Bodies”.

Davidson will still be executive producer and starring on the new Peacock streaming show called “Bupkis”. A streaming service spokesperson described it as “an elevated virtual version of Pete Davidson’s real life” and “an unfiltered, completely original worldview with well-known evidence-based storytelling and Pete.”
