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.

Check out all the times Saturday Night Live stars broke character inside…

'Saturday Night Live's Cecily Strong Impersonates Marjorie Taylor Greene to Discuss Her Thoughts on Conspiracy Theories - Watch!

Saturday Night Live is poking some fun at Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.

During the Cold Open on Saturday (January 30), Cecily Strong impersonated Marjorie to discuss her stance on QAnon conspiracy theories, which she often promotes.

In a mock talk show hosted by Kate McKinnon, Cecily as Marjorie takes her seat and offers Kate a gun.

They then talk about all the theories Marjorie believes, including the California wildfires were created by Jewish space lasers.

Cecily as Marjorie also claimed that both the Parkland school shooting and 9/11 were hoaxes.

“The teachers were actors and the children were dolls,” Cecily as Marjorie said about Parkland, before wondering “Did anyone actually see it happen?” about 9/11.

“Those are real things you believe and tell other people about?” Kate jokingly asked. “You represent the U.S. People can Google you and it’ll say, ‘She’s a real member of the U.S. government.’”

'SNL's Cecily Strong Nails Impersonation of Giuliani's Star 'Witness' Melissa Carrone - Watch!

Saturday Night Live is back and is taking on the alleged election fraud!

On Saturday (December 5), SNL started off their show with the recent Michigan hearings with Kate McKinnon once again playing Trump‘s attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In the sketch, Giuliani brings out witnesses who are “highly intelligent, barely intoxicated individuals.”

Cecily Strong then hits the stage as Melissa Carone, who has gone viral in the past few days for her messy and confusing testimony.

“I personally saw hundreds if not thousands of dead people vote,” Cecily as Melissa said. “I’m not lying. I signed an After David.”

“We have to listen to our hearts and our minds,” she said later. “And even though it’s a fraudulent erection, it can still get you pregnant.”
