In recent months, news surrounding the potential return or non-return of Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson has been unclear to many.

In a recent interview, the comedian spoke with Gold Derby, opening up about where he thought his future with SNL lies. The comedian and actor reminisced his last seven seasons and even memories from the recently ended Season 46. The 27-year-old said, “Speaking for myself, I don’t know what the plan is. Everything’s kind of up in the air right now just depending on scheduling. It is my seventh year, and that is usually what the contract’s for.”

Davidson, who spent a quarter of his life on the set of SNL, traced back to the beginning when he started in 2014 for Season 40, “I started there with acne and left with tattoos. It was a very crazy, long period of time. And I wasn’t ready for [this] season to end yet because I was really having so much fun.”

When asked if he was thinking of departing from the show, given that the standard contract is only seven years, the comedian previously told Hollywood Reporter, “I’m surprised I made it to seven. I’m ready to hang up the jersey. Kenan’s like fucking Karl Malone out there.”
