Pete Davidson is finally done with Saturday Night Live after eight seasons.
Posting on his Instagram, the show host confirmed that Saturday’s episode of NBC’s sketch comedy series would be his last, adding that his colleague Jerrod Carmichael sent him a video taken in 2014 on the night of Davidson’s first-ever episode.
“In the video I had just gotten back from doing my very first update and sketch,” Davidson wrote. “It’s crazy to think that today I’ll be doing my last one. When I got the show I was 20 years old and I had no idea what I was doing. I still don’t but especially back then.”
He added that he was “super scared” to appear on the show, but he’s glad he decided to lean in on his stand-up and personal “Weekend Update” segments.
“I got to share so much with this audience and literally grow up in front of your eyes,” he wrote. “We were together through the good and the bad, the happiest and the darkest of times. I owe Lorne Michaels and everyone at SNL my life. Im so grateful and I wouldn’t be here without them. I appreciate you guys always having my back and sticking up for me even when that wasn’t the popular opinion. Thank you for always believing in me and sticking by my side even when it seemed comical.”
He continued, “Thank you for teaching me life values, how to grow up and for giving me memories that will last a lifetime. SNL is my home. I’m so happy and sad about tonight’s show. For so many reasons I can’t explain. Can’t wait to be back next year in a Mulaney musical number.”
