Sasheer Zamata is exiting Saturday Night Live after four seasons, according to sources. She follows fellow castmembers Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer, who are also not returning to the show next season after nine and seven years, respectively.
Zamata joined the cast in 2014 and was the first black female castmember since Maya Rudolph left in 2007. She entertained with impressions of Michelle Obama, Rihanna, Diana Ross and Solange Knowles.
Following the show’s season finale on Saturday night, Zamata posted a picture on Instagram of her on set with the caption, “Wow. What a fantastic end to a fantastic season, thanks SNL.” Bayer, however, took to Instagram to announce her departure, while castmember Pete Davidson gave a heartwarming tribute to Moynihan (who will star in the new CBS comedy Me, Myself & I) in a sketch during the finale.
