The Staten Island, New York native, 28, is expected to leave the show after Saturday's season finale, a person familiar with the matter told Variety. 1010 WINS has reached out to NBC for comment.

Davidson joined the show in 2014 when he was 20.

He initially appeared largely in "Weekend Update" segments, but over the years, he expanded his repertoire, impersonating former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and actor Rami Malek.

Davidson, though, has been busy in recent months: He took time off from "SNL" to work on a horror movie "The Home," which was shot in New York and New Jersey.

He also will star in "Bubkis," a show for the streaming service Peacock, which will be based on Davidson's life. His mother will be played by "Nurse Jackie" and "The Sopranos" star Edie Falco.

Davidson has also grabbed headlines of late for dating Kim Kardashian. The pair attended the Met Gala and the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and one report said that she is urging him to buy a home on the West Coast.
