Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Kyle Mooney, and Pete Davidson are all departing Saturday Night Live this season. The announcement comes after creator Lorne Michaels announced that 2022 will be a year of transition for the program. There is a chance that all four actors may say their last goodbyes in the forthcoming program, which will be hosted by Natasha Lyonne. The most recent season of the program has the most stars, with roughly 21 stars appearing in Season 8 and beyond.
