Rumors started circulating late Saturday night of a third departure, but producers hadn't confirmed the news as of this writing.
Sasheer Zamata is leaving "Saturday Night Live".
"Saturday Night Live" is saying goodbye to yet another cast member.
Last week, Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer announced their departures from the NBC sketch comedy series. She took to Instagram, posting a photo of her on stage with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kate McKinnon, Scarlett Johansson, and musical guest Katy Perry, among others.
Though she hadn't scored any real breakthrough original characters, Zamata did a strong Michelle Obama, and included Rihanna and Solange Knowles among her roster.
Zamata was hired as a performer in 2014, following public criticism of the show's lack of diversity. Zamata, then best known for her improv work at New York's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, was the ultimate selection - along with Leslie Jones, at first brought aboard as a writer and then promoted to the cast.
There's no doubt that Zamata, Moynihan, and Bayer will be missed by fans.
