Things We Saw Today: Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant Are Leaving ‘SNL’

Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant on 'Saturday Night Live'.

It’s the end of an era as powerhouse comedic duo Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon depart ‘Saturday Night Live’. Bryant and McKinnon are joined by Pete Davidson and Kyle Mooney, who will also be leaving the long-running sketch comedy series. A large group goodbye segment is set for tonight’s season finale, hosted by Natasha Lyonne.

It’s not a surprise to see these cast members go: McKinnon has spent 10 seasons on the series, as has Bryant, with both joining the series in 2012. Mooney has been with the show since 2013, while Davidson joined in 2014. And while tabloid fixture Davidson is garnering the most headlines, it’s Bryant and McKinnon who we’ll miss the most. McKinnon is best known for her iconic impressions of Hillary Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as well as original characters like Barbara DeDrew, Debette Goldry, and alien abductee Colleen Rafferty.
