Brooks Wheelan isn’t the only one exiting “Saturday Night Live.” A day after he announced he was “fired” on Twitter comes a report that Noel Wells and John Milhiser will be joining him on the unemployment line.
According to Deadline, Wells and Milhiser will not have their contracts renewed after joining the sketch comedy series in 2013 as featured players. Michael Patrick O’Brien’s future on the show is also unclear. He joined the featured players after serving as a writer for four years. Deadline reports that he’s in talks to possibly return to the writing staff or stay on-air.
As for veterans leaving the show, Nasim Pedrad is exiting for a starring role on FOX’s fall comedy “Mulaney,” which is executive produced by “SNL” chief Lorne Michaels. She first joined the series in 2009.
