Bobby Moynihan is taking his final bow on “Saturday Night Live” this week.
The longtime cast member is departing after nine seasons on the sketch show, media outlets reported.
Moynihan’s exit should not come as a shock to those who followed the news coming out of broadcast Upfronts.
He’ll star in a new series called “Me, Myself & I” that follows one man throughout three different periods of his life. John Larroquette stars as the older version of Moynihan’s character.
With Moynihan’s departure, “SNL” loses one of its most veteran cast members. Only Kenan Thompson, who has been with the show 14 seasons, has been there longer.
On screen, Moynihan was best known for his impersonations of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Food Network personality Guy Fieri and characters like Drunk Uncle.
Behind the scenes, Moynihan was responsible for co-writing some of the show’s most iconic sketches, including recent classics like “David S. Pumpkins” for Tom Hanks’ episode and the “Undercover Boss” sketch featuring Kylo Ren.
Moynihan’s final appearance will be on Saturday’s season finale, with host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and musical guest Katy Perry.
