Wunderkind comedian Pete Davidson has been cast as a featured player for Saturday Night Live's upcoming season, following months of change, which include four SNL performers departures from the show, and Michael Che replacing Cecily Strong as Weekend Update anchor. Davidson, known for his self-depreciating humor, will join the cast of the landmark fortieth season, joining Che, Colin Jost, Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, and Sasheer Zamata in the featured players cast. No cast member has been promoted to repertory cast just yet. Davidson is the first cast member in the history of the show to have been born in the 1990s, and will be the youngest of the current cast. In other SNL matters, Mike O'Brien has gone back to being exclusively a writer, a position he has had for the last five seasons. This follows last season's demotion of featured player Tim Robinson back to the writer's room. The season premiere of Saturday Night Live will be on September 27th, with host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande.
