Vanessa Bayer Exits ‘Saturday Night Live’
Saturday Night Live is losing cast member Vanessa Bayer after this weekend’s season finale.
News of Bayer’s exit, which was first reported by Deadline, comes just days after word of Bobby Moynihan’s departure after nine seasons.
For her final sketch, Bayer portrayed Millwood High School seniors who reflected on the past year.
Bayer is the show’s longest-serving female castmember. She joined SNL as a featured member in 2010 before being promoted to a full castmember two years later.
Bayer is also famous for her roles on the big screen, including Office Christmas Party and Trainwreck. She played many hilarious characters on SNL, such as Miley Cyrus and Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy.
“Thank you SNL for 7 years of laughs, love and incredible memories. It has been a dream come true,” Bayer posted on Instagram.
Saturday’s SNL season finale also featured Dwayne Johnson as host and Katy Perry as musical guest.
