Pete Davidson said he was unsure if he’ll have a future at SNL, now that he’s hit the 7 year mark. The point when contracts are up and many cast members move on.
“It is my seventh year, and that’s usually what the contract’s usually for, so it was really emotional,” he told Gold Derby in an interview. “I worked with these guys for a fourth of my life, and I started there with acne and left with tattoos, and it was just, like, a very crazy, long period of time.
“I wasn’t ready for the season to end yet because I was really having so much fun,” the “Big Time Adolescence” actor continued. “Just watching it go from one-third of an audience to [one-half] … and the last show was a full audience for the first time, just hearing that laugh, that full room laugh … I was just so emotional.”
Pete has expressed a desire to move on to other things, but many cast members balance both. “I don’t know what the plan is,” he said. “Everything’s kind of up in the air right now just depending on scheduling.”
