And Kenan Thompson effectively, he’s starring in a sitcom now.
Though nothing has been confirmed, the web is freaking out that Strong, McKinnon, Kenan, Bryant, Davidson, and Thompson — aka the OG forged — are all leaving the present now.

Thompson, Bryant, Strong, and McKinnon have all been on the present for greater than 9 years, and the core 4 anchored the forged tribute through the chilly open. In lieu of a typical political chilly open, the 4 forged members stood on stage and reminisced about their weird COVID yr on the present, from fixed nostril swabs to their attention-grabbing resolution to stack with SNL viewers with exhausted first responders who appeared like they’d relatively be saving lives than watching sketch comedy. It was an emotional send-off for a tough yr.
The inform that your favourite forged members could be leaving, and emphasis on may, as nothing has been confirmed but, was that Byrant, McKinnon, and Strong ended the chilly open with tears of their eyes as McKinnon mentioned, “This is a year when we realized we are more than just a cast, we are a family.” Could be tears for getting by a season of sketch comedy in a pandemic, however may be hinting at one thing better?
Later within the present, Davidson did his factor on Weekend Update and signed off by saying, “I’m very grateful to be here, and it has been an honor to grow up in front of you guys.” Which sounds an terrible lot like a goodbye, no?
Also, though Thompson has joked previously that he’s by no means leaving SNL, his NBC sitcom Kenan was simply picked up for Season 2, which movies in Los Angeles. Not solely that, however impressions-master Melissa Villaseñor posted on Instagram Stories just lately that she’s “not coming back next year. Cause I deserve better,” although she reportedly denied it in a follow-up submit.
Whatever the case, I’ll be unhappy to not have new Kate and Aidy sketches or hear Kenan’s chuckle or watch a pitch-perfect Cecily Strong character each Saturday night time. Or possibly this was all a giant overreaction and we’ll see all of them once more subsequent season? Either approach, bravo to the forged of SNL for making us snicker each week by the darkest rattling yr.
