The remaining members of SNL include Taran Killam, Vaness Bayer, Bobby Moynihan, Jay Pharaoh, Nasim Pedrad, Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong, and Kate McKinnon. Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen are supposed to leave the show in the near future. Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg left the show last season to dive into their own personal endeavors.
SNL will not have any other choice but to replace the lost cast members with new players and bring in some new talent. While the other remaining members have been able to carry their own, the show will lose Seth Meyers unique writing and new writers will need to be added to continue the humor.
