Weekend Update co-anchor and Saturday Night Live co-head writer Michael Che may be moving on from the legendary variety show after this year. During a recent show in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the comedian joked that this would be his last season with Saturday Night Live.
“This is my last year,” Che said, according to the Star Tribune.
“You know my tie is a clip-on, right? What man wears a clip-on tie to work for eight years — that’s embarrassing.”
After Che’s comments were shared with the mass media, many began to develop pieces about Che’s potential departure. However, Che took to Instagram not long thereafter to address the matter.
“To comedy fans; please stop telling reporters everything you hear at a comedy show. You’re spoiling the trick,” Che stated.
At this time, it’s unclear what Che’s future is with the show. Deadline has reported that no major casting decisions have been made for the next season and it’s not uncommon to hear rumors about major shakeups around this time of year. For now, fans will just have to sit and wait until a decision becomes final.
