Tomorrow night will be the season finale of season 47 of Saturday Night Live. And tomorrow night will be the night that four long-running cast members will take their final end-of-show bows.

The news first broke earlier today that Pete Davidson will be leaving the show. Pete joined the cast in 2014 at only 20 years old. He has been on the show for eight seasons.

News then broke that Kate McKinnon will also be departing. Kate has been on the show since April of 2012. In her time, she has been nominated for nine Emmys and has won twice.

Aidy Bryant also joined in 2012, a few episodes after Kate McKinnon, and also announced today that she will leave after tomorrow night's season finale. Aidy has been nominated for three Emmys.

Last but not least, tomorrow night will also be Kyle Mooney's final show. He joined in 2013.

While all of these cast members have been on the show for several years, none of them have been on as long as Kenan Thompson. Kenan joined 19 seasons ago, has the distinction of being the longest running cast member, and has made no indication that he plans to leave any time soon.

Tomorrow night's finale will be hosted by Natasha Lyonne and will feature musical guest Japanese Breakfast.
