Are These Stars All Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'? Find Out Why People Are Speculating!

Some stars of Saturday Night Live are causing a lot of speculation on social media!

Following the season finale of the long-running sketch comedy show on Saturday night (May 22), fans began to worry that several major players on the series might be signaling their goodbyes.

Following the episode, several major names started trending as potential castmates leaving the show.

If you didn’t know, seven seasons is generally the standard length of the SNL contract. There are a ton of castmates who are at that point and beyond, via Deadline: Kenan Thompson (18 seasons), Kate McKinnon (10), Aidy Bryant (9), Cecily Strong (9), Colin Jost (8), Beck Bennett (8), Kyle Mooney (8), Michael Che (7).

There are some stars who have made it clear they’re staying, including Michael Che, who said he’s “99.9″ percent sure he’s coming back on The View recently.

Many others, however, seemed to hint at their departure.

The show’s cold open kicked off with the show’s longest-running players, who almost all teared up while speaking.

“This is a year when we realized we are more than just a cast, we are a family,” Kate said, tearing up.

Later on during Weekend Update, Pete said: “I’m very grateful to be here, and it has been an honor to grow up in front of you guys.”

In the same segment, Cecily played Judge Jeanine Pirro and closed out the segment with a performance of “My Way,” singing the sign-off: “I did it my way.”

“I hear nothing is final yet but even if just a few of the long-time eight cast members leave, we would have one of the biggest cast overhauls in SNL history,” a Deadline insider noted of the rumblings of multiple departures.

Pete Davidson made headlines for his Weekend Update speech – find out why.

'Saturday Night Live' Stars Who Broke Character During Skits

There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to putting on an episode of Saturday Night Live: it is live, after all.

As a result, cast members and hosts need to stick to their scripts closely in order to keep the sketches flowing smoothly – and they also need to keep a straight face as they fly through dozens of jokes every night. But what happens when they…can’t?

Time and time again, we’ve watched over the years as the cast of SNL, and myriad celebrity hosts, absolutely lose it after cracking up at one of the jokes they’ve said, the sheer absurdity of the sketch, or something entirely unexpected happening in a scene. In most cases, it only makes the sketch even more hilarious for the audience watching at home.

We’ve rounded up some of the best moments where the SNL stars have absolutely lost it during a sketch.

Dan Levy & Aidy Bryant Highlight COVID-19 Safety Protocols During 'Saturday Night Live' Monologue - Watch Now!

Dan Levy is making his Saturday Night Live hosting debut!

The 37-year-old Schitt’s Creek actor and co-creator hosted the sketch show on Saturday (February 6).

During his opening monologue, Dan decided to show off the coronavirus safety protocols the show has put in place to keep the cast, crew, and audience members safe.

Dan left the stage to chat with an audience member, when safety guru Dorene (aka Aidy Bryant) came out to make sure Dan was six-feet away from the fan.

“When you wanna get chummy just pout a noodle in your tummy,” Dorene said while holding up a pool noodle between Dan and the audience member to measure the distance.

Dan then went to give a tour of Studio 8H, which includes anti-viral mist, socially-distanced dressing rooms, and staff members in hazmat suits.

Dan then bumped into his dad Eugene Levy, who was locked in a box, since he took a flight from Los Angeles to New York City to watch his son host the show.

“I flew in to wish you luck tonight but because I traveled, I’m in this isolation box,” the 74-year-old actor said.

Eugene then asked a staff member to move the box so he could get a better view of his son on stage.

Before the episode, Dan‘s mom (and Eugene‘s wife) sent out a message to all of Dan‘s childhood bullies.

Dan Levy and Phoebe Bridgers are ready to take on Saturday Night Live!

The sketch show released two new promos for this week’s episode, which the 37-year-old Schitt’s Creek actor will be hosting while the 26-year-old singer will be performing as the musical guest.

Joining Dan and Phoebe in the promos was SNL cast member Aidy Bryant.

“Hi I’m Dan Levy and I’m hosting SNL with Phoebe Bridgers!” Dan starts.

Aidy then chimes in, “Yeah, and this one better be funny guys. Dan, I want to see big commitment out of you. And Phoebe, I expect your songs to be hilarious – Weird Al level.”

“They’re not,” Dan responds as Aidy yells, “Then what the hell are we going to do?!” before running off camera.

In another promo, Dan asks Phoebe to write a song about him, since they’ve become close during rehearsals this week.

“I think I’m good,” Phoebe responds to a disappointed Dan before Aidy says that she will write one about him – but it’s just her singing a quick tune.

Also this weekend, Dan will also be appearing in this company’s Super Bowl commercial.

Make sure you to catch SNL with Dan Levy hosting and Phoebe Bridgers performing this Saturday night (February 6) on NBC!
