Bobby Moynihan is Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'

Bobby Moynihan exiting'SNL

The moment that Bobby Moynihan's Me, Myself & I pilot was picked up by CBS, it was clear that his Saturday Night Live days were numbered.

Oh no! Bobby Moynihan, 40, has been a central member of the Saturday Night Live cast for a whopping 9 seasons.

Moynihan had the second longest tenure among current SNL cast members behind Keenan Thompson, a veteran of 14 seasons on the show. According to Deadline, Moynihan chose to leave after his sitcom Me, Myself, And I was picked up by CBS for a fall spot.

According to Deadline, which first reported the news, Moynihan signed a two-year extension after his original seven-year deal expired.

Moynihan introduced Me, Myself & I and his new co-stars at the Upfront presentations, but did not confirm at the time if he was going to be leaving SNL. Moynihan will play Alex in present day with Jack Grazer playing young Alex and John Larroquette playing the oldest version. His best known recurring character is Drunk Uncle, who shows up to tell stories on the show's "Weekend Update" segment.

Meanwhile, we can expect to see a special goodbye in Moynihan's final episode of "SNL", with the season finale (hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and featuring musical guest Katy Perry) airing Saturday, May 20 at 8:30 p.m. PT and 11:30 p.m. ET on Global.
