Following news of eight-season cast member Pete Davidson's exit on Friday, Deadline has reported that Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are also departing NBC's long-running sketch comedy show. A representative from NBC did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment. Pete Davidson Is Leaving Saturday Night Live: Report Will Heath/NBC McKinnon, 38, and Bryant, 35, both joined the show in 2012. Since then, McKinnon has won two Emmys for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series and netted an additional six nods in that category, as well as a 2014 music and lyrics nomination for the song "Home for the Holiday (Twin Bed)." "Lil Baby Aidy," as Bryant is affectionately known, was nominated twice in the same category as McKinnon and shared the "Twin Bed" nomination with her alongside SNL behind-the-scenes players Eli Brueggemann, Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider. During her tenure on SNL, she also found success — and another Emmy nomination — in her starring role on Hulu's Shrill, which she also created and wrote. Mooney, 37, joined the show in 2013 and has been best known for his absurdist digital short collaborations with former costar Beck Bennett, whose departure from the show was confirmed last September.

"You sound like if sandpaper could talk." Quipped McKinnon, "You sound like every secretary in a Monsters Inc. movie."
