NEW YORK — Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson were among those who left “Saturday Night Live,” leaving the charter establishment uncontroversial two famous names after the conclusion of the 47th season on Saturday.

Eddie Bryant and Kyle Mooney will also leave the cast after the episode hosted by Natasha Lyonne.

The Departures represent one of the biggest changes to the cast in years for a show that has seen extraordinary consistency in recent seasons.

McKinnon, 38, has won two Emmys and has been nominated for nine of her 10 seasons on the show, whose impressions included Hillary Clinton and former attorney general Jeff Sessions. Her comedic clips with characters like the bizarre kidnapped Miss Rafferty often caused fellow cast members and guest hosts to miss her live.

McKinnon opened the show with an out-of-this-world comic, and said her last goodbye on “Earth.”

“I love you, thanks for letting me stay for a while. Live from New York, it’s Saturday night,” she said at the show’s opening.

The 28-year-old Davidson joined the cast in 2014 and has appeared in eight seasons. His massive personality often outperformed the characters he played. His comedic comments as in “Weekend Update” were often his most popular parts. And he was known for his off-screen life – dating Ariana Grande and current girlfriend Kim Kardashian – as in.

“I never imagined this would be my life,” Davidson said during the show. “I appreciate SNL for always having my back, for letting me work on myself and growing. Thank you Lorne for not abandoning me or judging me even when everyone else was, for believing in me and allowing me to have a place I can call home with memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you.”

Bryant, 35, joined the cast at the same time as McKinnon and has been consistent in graphics since then, receiving four Emmy Award nominations.

Mooney, 37, has appeared in nine seasons starting in 2013.
