SNL Releasing Another 3 of It's Cast Old and New

Saturday Night Live has a not-so-funny side: the departure of cast members.

Three featured players — John Milhiser, Noël Wells and Brooks Wheelan — won’t be back for the 40th season of the popular NBC late-night series. The contracts of the trio, all first-year cast members trying to establish themselves on the show, were not renewed.

Wheelan had tweeted his exit Monday.

Nasim Pedrad, a five-season regular listed as a repertory player, is leaving to join the Fox comedy, Mulaney, which is being produced by longtime SNL chief Lorne Michaels.

An SNL representative said the show doesn’t comment on cast changes.
