Brooks Wheelan announced that he is will not be returning to Saturday Night Live after one season.
“[I] Had a blast and loved every second of it,” the 27-year-old comedian tweeted Monday. Wheelan, who did impressions of Kid Rock and One Direction’s Harry Styles on the show, added, “I’m totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT!”
A rep for the show said Saturday Night Live does not comment on casting changes, and Wheelan’s management also declined to comment to TIME. The Hollywood Reporter says it confirmed the news with “a source close to Saturday Night Live.”
Future plans for this season’s SNL freshmen Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Mike O’Brien, Noel Wells and Sasheer Zamata have not been announced.
