Pete Davidson LEAVING Saturday Night Live after eight years with the next project a Netflix special

Pete Davidson is leaving Saturday Night Live after seven seasons on the legendary late-night sketch series.

Kim Kardashian’s Boyfriend Set to Leave the Show Before Season 48, Source Says Variety. Her final appearance is rumored to be on this weekend’s May 21 episode with Natasha Lyonne.

Davidson, 28, was an unknown when he joined the NBC comedy show’s 40th season, but has seen his profile rise thanks, in part, to his colorful love life.

He was notably absent from the award-winning comedy sketch showing his final season, having missed several episodes while filming a new horror film.

He made headlines over the past year as he dined out, vacationed and bonded with the Kardashians and was apparently in a social media feud with ex-husband Kayne West.

Davidson joined SNL in 2014 as a star player at the age of 20. Although he has not confirmed his next plans, he has focused a lot of energy on the film and television scene.

The comedian is preparing to release his comedy special on Netflix, where he is expected to divulge details of his relationship with Kardashian. The special is set to release on June 13.

Davidson also revealed that he is creating a TV show, Bupkis, which is meant to tell a “raw, unflinching and fictionalized” version of his real life.

SNL stars Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are also set to leave the show.

National Voter Registration Day was posted on Twitter shortly after confirming his exit from SNL, alleging he “cannot confirm” he was leaving the show to work with their organization. But, the post seems to be a joke.

Davidson became best known for the sketch series playing the apathetic “Chad” which first appeared in 2016 and has proven popular over the past five years.

Described as the “stereotypical stoner brother”, Chad appeared in a skit with British superstar Adele when she hosted the show in 2020.

In 2020, Davidson released a film based on her life, The King of Staten Island, cementing her status as a true breakout star, following in Kristen Wiig’s footsteps. The film marked one of his first starring roles at a major studio.

Since then, he has apparently been committed to continuing his film and television career.

In March, Deadline revealed that the SNL regular missed some episodes of season 47 because he was filming The Home – a horror thriller in which he is the lead.

The film, directed by James DeMonaco, who also directed The Purge, tells the story of Max, a troubled man who starts working in a nursing home. Davidson’s character realizes that the residents and staff “hide dark secrets” and launches an investigation, which uncovers connections to his own past as an adopted child.

In April, A24 released the final trailer for their upcoming film Bodies Bodies Bodies, which is set to be released on August 5.

The film centers on a group of privileged young adults who party at an isolated family mansion during a hurricane. The group decides to play a murder mystery game that triggers a real killing spree.

Collider described Bodies Bodies Bodies as a film with “a bit of horror and a lot of laughs thanks to its talented cast”.

Davidson is also set to star in a comedy alongside former Disney Channel actress Naomi Scott in A24’s Wizards!

According to Colliderthe film tells the story of “two unfortunate beach bar operators who run into trouble when they come across stolen loot that they really should have left alone”.

The film does not appear to have started production yet.

Additionally, Davidson revealed last week during a performance at NBC Upfronts that he has teamed up with Peacock to create a show based on his life.

“I’m heard to tell you about my new show Bupkis, which is based on my real life,” he told the crowd with a laugh. “I’ve done a lot of projects that reference my life because that’s kind of all I can do.”

The series marks Davidson’s second time embarking on a project centered around his own life. It is unclear when the show will begin production or release.

Other highlights of his time on SNL include when he opened up about his mental health on the Weekend Update skit, speaking candidly about his borderline personality disorder diagnosis.

Davidson said: “Depression affects over 16 million people in this country and there is no cure per se. But for anyone dealing with it, there are treatments that can help. First, if you think you’re depressed, see a doctor and talk to them about medication. And be healthy, too: eating well and exercising can make a huge difference. »

He then appeared to give SNL a light dig, saying, “Well, if you’re cast on a late-night comedy show, it might help if they, you know, do more of your comedy sketches.”

Colin Jost asked Davidson to clarify his comments, and he didn’t hold back, saying, “I was born depressed, but it might make me feel better if I was on TV more!”

He continued: The show is about eight hours long and there are about 50 sketches a week. Seems odd that you don’t use one to fight mental illness, but I guess that’s not your style.

It was also on Weekend Update where he addressed his split from girlfriend Ariana Grande, saying, “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business.”

He added: “Sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay.” He is a wonderful and strong person, and I sincerely wish him all the happiness in the world.”

More recently, Davidson has risen to worldwide prominence through his relationship with megastar Kardashian.

It was revealed earlier this month that Davidson compared Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West to Mrs. Doubtfire in his new Netflix comedy special, shedding light on the custody drama between his girlfriend and his ex-husband.

Earlier this year, Kanye, 44, launched a series of accusations that Kardashian was preventing him from having full access to their four children. North, view, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, three.

In a move that’s sure to enrage the rapper, Davidson devotes a segment on Netflix’s Is a Joke: The Festival where he admits to “secretly hoping” her ex-husband “shoots a Mrs. Doubtfire.”

“Does anyone else secretly hope Kanye shoots like a Mrs. Doubtfire?” he told the laughing crowd in a recently shared clip.

“I come home one day and they tell me, it’s the new governess. And he’s like, “What’s up fam?”

The joke ties into the 1993 family comedy which sees Robin Williams play a recently divorced man who dresses up as a housekeeper in order to spend time with his children.

The shoot was filmed on April 30 at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, with Kardashian in attendance at the show.

Davidson previously hinted that he was ready to leave SNL in 2020.

In an interview with Charlamagne Tha God he said: “I have conversations with a lot of people [about leaving].’

Adding: “It’s a hard thing to do because you never want to pull the trigger too soon. Everyone always said, ‘You’ll know when you know and you’ll be fine.’
