Where will we see the Saturday Night Live cast members now that they have left Studio 8H? Well, the new announcement comes just days after Davidson announced that he will be starring in a new Peacock comedy, Bupkis. Since Peacock is a subsidiary of NBC, he has not bid farewell entirely to the network. Bupkis is an adaptation on his own life, and will be exec produced by Lorne Michaels and his banner, Broadway Video.

Davidson has been one of Saturday Night Live‘s biggest stars since he joined eight years ago at the age of 20. He was pretty much unknown, and quickly rose up to fame with his comedy. He started trending on the internet as well, after numerous celebrity relationships with actresses and singers. He is currently dating Kim Kardashian and even acted alongside her when she hosted SNL.

McKinnon has been the longest-starring female cast member of Saturday Night Live. She joined in 2012, with Bryant joining a few months later. Her rising movie career could be why she is departing. Bryant, meanwhile, has created the Hulu hit named Shrill, and will have a lot more to contribute. Mooney has recently created the Netflix comedy Saturday Morning All Star Hits, and will get busy with that and other projects soon.

We wish these talented individuals a bright career!
