Pete Davidson to leave Saturday Night Live

As per a report on Variety, Davidson debuted on Saturday Night Live in 2014 as one of its youngest cast members at age 20. He emerged as one of the show's most popular members while establishing himself as a notable performer. Reportedly, the artiste will quit the show following the season 47 finale this weekend. His decision to part ways with the show is possibly due to his busy schedule as a TV and film actor in recent months, which includes projects like The Home.

For the unversed, this season featured its largest-ever cast with 21 stars. Stars like Michael Che, Colin Jost, Cecily Strong and Kenan Thompson are some of the oldest cast members in the show’s history. Earlier, creator Lorne Michaels admitted that he was expecting this year to be a 'year of change' for the show.
