‘Saturday Night Live’ (or simply ‘SNL’) is one of the most entertaining series ever to grace television. The show’s long-enduring success has to be dedicated to its impressive team of writers and performers who come up with hilarious sketches and humorous bits that have become an indispensable part of pop culture. ‘SNL’ has served as a launchpad to the careers of some of the best comedic talents in the USA, such as Tina Fey, Jason Sudeikis, and Adam Sandler, just to name a few.
In an interview with Time magazine, Beck Bennett explained why he decided to leave “Saturday Night Live,” which returns to NBC on Saturday. Bennett, on the show for eight seasons, is the only departure this year in a cast filled with long-timers such as Kenan Thompson (19 seasons), Aidy Bryant (10), and Cecily Strong (10).

In almost every sketch comedy ensemble, you’ll find several archetypes. The alpha star. The weird omega, often the fool and the butt of jokes.

Saturday Night Live has announced the final and full cast list for its upcoming 47th season. As is true for almost every year, there are new faces and departing ones as well.

Also departing is featured player Lauren Holt, who joined the show last fall.
Beck Bennett will no longer be spitting in Kyle Mooney’s throat or appearing with him on SNL. The show revealed his departure from the cast in a September 27 press release that also announced the addition of three new featured players, as well as the departure of featured player Lauren Holt, who had just joined the show last year. While the news comes as a surprise, it’s also not a surprise surprise. Bennett is one of those SNL cast members who now lives in Los Angeles. It’s safe to say he is probably looking to spend more time in his home city, which, again, is Los Angeles. A place that is a good six-hour plane ride from NYC, with a three-hour time difference to boot. He’ll be greatly missed, but we don’t even want to think about what his Good Neighbor teammate and SNL cast mate Mooney is going through right now in terms of sadness.
