Saturday night’s episode of the long-running show was, unfortunately, Zamata’s last.

It was revealed last week that two Saturday Night Live cast members, Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer, would be leaving. Now, another cast member has departed the show.

Saturday’s show, hosted by The Rock, was the last for Sasheer Zamata. 

Rumors began brewing that a third cast member was leaving the show shortly after Moynihan and Bayer’s news became public. ET Online confirmed Zamata’s departure Sunday morning.

Following Saturday’s episode, Zamata was carried off the stage by The Rock and cast member Colin Jost, a last hoorah for the funny lady who made us laugh as Michelle Obama

Zamata’s comedy special Pizza Mind dropped back in March on Seeso and she’s flexed her acting skills in Netflix’s Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, Amazon’s Transparent, and Yoga Hosers, so there will be no shortage of work for the comedian. 

We look forward to seeing what she does next.
