Pete Davidson doesn’t seem too convinced that he’ll be hanging at 30 Rockefeller Plaza much longer.
He made some pretty shocking claims in a new interview with Gold Derby.

The ‘SNL’ star made history when he was cast at just 20-years-old in 2014, making him one of the youngest members cast in the show’s long history.
This isn’t the first time Davidson has hinted or even admitted his uncertainty about his future with the show.
In May while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter’s “Comedy Actor Roundtable,” the ‘King Of Staten Island’ star said he was ready to “hang up the jersey.”
Season 46 Feels!
During the THR conversation Davidson was asked, “I’ve heard you say that this past season of ‘SNL’ has been your favorite season, which is vastly different from how you’d been describing your ‘SNL’ experience a year or two ago. What changed for you?”
In February of 2020 while speaking to Charlamane Tha God during an episode of “Live your Truth: An Honest Conversation With Charlamagne Tha God” Davidson said, “I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it.”
He said he was treated like a punchline on the show, and that when he was not there he felt people were talking about him behind his back.

Fans of the show were left wondering if Davidson had subtly announced his departure from the show after some comments he made on “The Weekend Update” during the season finale.
Davidson has been a staple on the show for seven years.
In an exclusive video interview with ‘GD’ Davidson revealed he’s still not sure about his future plans.
“I don’t know what the plan is. Everything’s kind of up in the air right now just depending on scheduling,” the 27-year-old revealed.
Season 46, which wrapped in May, was his favorite season by far.
Davidson said, “It is my seventh year, and that’s usually what the contract’s usually for, so it was really emotional. I worked with these guys for a fourth of my life, and I started there with acne and left with tattoos, and it was just, like, a very crazy, long period of time.”
“I wasn’t ready for the season to end yet because I was really having so much fun,” the actor continued. “Just watching it go from one-third of an audience to one-half… and the last show was a full audience for the first time, just hearing that laugh, that full room laugh … I was just so emotional.”
McKinnon and Strong have been on the show since 2012. The funny women have portrayed a wide-array of characters like Hilary Clinton, Melania Trump and Kellyanne Conway.
An NBC source reportedly told Page Six at the time that contracts for Season 47 would not be decided until later in the summer.
