Taran Killam & Jay Pharoah Set to Depart 'Saturday Night Live'
The news comes as a surprise as Taran and Jay joined the cast in 2010 and were reported to have signed seven year contracts. This means their run was ended one season early.
“You sign for seven years, so I had one more year. I had sort of had it in my head I would make this upcoming year my last year, but then heard they weren’t going to pick up my contract. I was never given a reason why, really,” Taran explained to Uproxx.
Both actors have other projects in the works including Taran‘s flick Why We’re Killing Gunther with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jay‘s animated film Sing.
