SNL cast member, actor and stand-up talent Pete Davidson is one of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood right now and he known to not mince words when it comes to expressing his opinion regarding something.
There is absolutely no doubt that Pete Davidson is one of the most integral members of the long-running show. Davidson is also arguably the most successful performer outside of Saturday Night Live and last month, he hinted at a departure from the show.
While speaking to Gold Derby, Pete Davidson talked about his future with Saturday Night Live. Pete Davidson stated that he isn’t really sure if a return will happen in the next season of the show.
“Speaking for myself, I don’t know what the plan is. Everything is kind of up in the air right now, just depending on scheduling. It is my seventh year, and that’s what the contract is usually for.
You know, I worked with these guys for a fourth of my life. I started there with acne and left with tattoos. Right now, it’s still – it’s all up in the air. I got to talk to Lorne [Michaels]. It’s a big cast; there’s a lot of new guys in there, and there’s a lot of great new talent that it’s their time to shine. I have no idea what’s going on right now.”
Outside of SNL, Pete Davidson’s movie career is certainly flourishing as he will have an appearance in 2021’s The Suicide Squad and on top of that, he’s currently filming/recording the voice of Marmaduke for the animated adaptation of the classic comic strip. He is also set to act in American Sole, The Things They Carried (adapted from Tim O’Brien’s book), and the role of Joey Ramone in I Slept With Joey Ramone. We will have to see if Davidson does return to SNL for at least one more season as fans would love to see him back.
