Bobby Moynihan is officially leaving Saturday Night Live after nine seasons, according to Deadline.

Moynihan has proven himself to be one of SNL's strongest cast members since he joined in 2008 and has since become one of the most popular and recognizable comedians now on the show.

Meanwhile, we can expect to see a special goodbye in Moynihan's final episode of "SNL", with the season finale (hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and featuring musical guest Katy Perry) airing Saturday, May 20 at 8:30 p.m. PT and 11:30 p.m. ET on Global.

On Wednesday, Moynihan appeared at CBS' upfront presentation with his fellow "Me, Myself & I" cast members. After completing his seven-year contract on SNL, Moynihan scored a two-year extension and had previously planned to leave after this current season.

Moynihan's exit should not come as a shock to those who followed the news coming out of broadcast Upfronts.

He also played recurring original characters such as Drunk Uncle, Riblet and Anthony Crispino. He will be portrayed as a teenager in 1991 by Jack Dylan Grazer, as a 40-year-old in present day by Moynihan, and as a senior citizen in 2042 by John Larroquette. Dan Kopelman, Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and Randall Einhorn (pilot only) are executive producers for Kapital Entertainment in association with Warner Bros.
