Moffat and Villaseño were promoted to the main cast in 2018 after joining in 2016. Athari only linked up with “SNL” last season.

“SNL” creator Lorne Michaels previously described 2022 as a “year of change” for the long-running sketch-comedy series. Head of talent Lindsay Shookus also recently exited the show after two decades with the program.
