Studio 8H is losing cast members left and right!
We reported yesterday how SNL cast member Brooks Wheelan had been given the boot, but now the show has fired two other freshman featured players, Noël Wells, and John Milhiser.
In addition, the show is losing veteran Nasim Pedrad whose going to be on Fox's Mulaney!
We wonder if anyone else will be saying goodbye to 30 Rockefeller Plaza, or if these are the last departures!
Noël, John, and Nasim…best of luck!

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye!
SNL may start with a cold open, but it just gave the cold goodbye to Brooks after only his first season!
Brooks broke the news to his Twitter followers in a pretty HIGHlarious way to show that he wasn't too badly broken up about it:
Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!
— Brooks Wheelan (@brookswheelan) July 14, 2014
In addition to this tweet, a source close to the show confirmed that Brooks had been let go!
Brooks is the first to go, but are there more castmembers to follow? Time will tell who makes the cut for next season!

Can you believe it's going to be Saturday Night Live's 40th seasonal birthday very VERY soon?!
And with such a monumental anniversary, the show's creator, Lorne Michaels says big changes are coming!
In a new interview, the late night Canadian genius explained that SNL has lost many major players in recent years, and are still rebuilding:
Tracy Morgan is responsive and recovering following a fatal six-car accident that killed his friend comedian James McNair.
But the SNL and 30 Rock star is still listed as being in critical condition. Friends and family are still hoping that he makes it out of this tragic event OK.
Mr. Morgan’s old pal Andy Samberg spoke about the accident, saying:
No! Why? But why?!
"Why should I? I don't know how good it would be. I'm slow now. There are guys who love doing it, who are great at doing it. I just don't know how good I'd be doing it. I did what I could do on that show."
Oh ye of little faith!
We think that Adam would be a great host! He's an SNL legend as far as we're concerned!
Ch-ch-check out the entire interview with Norm…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
What a way to finish a great season!
St. Vincent dropped by Saturday Night Live last night to give us a glimpse of what the future beholds, and we like what we see!
The female rocker, whose real name is Annie Clark, started off with her awesome jam called Digital Witness before finishing off in style with Birth in Reverse.
Try not to bob your head along to these tunes — it's semi-impossible!!!
We LOVE the choreography, the synthesizers, and obviously St. Vincent's amazing guitar skills and rockin' lyrics!
Check out both of the songs she performed last night (below) and see if you liked 'em as much as we did
Best cold open ever?
The ah-mazing night started off with a message from Solange and Jay Z who attempt to explain what REALLY happened that infamous night at the Met Gala on the elevator, and how their is NO beef between the two!
In case that didn't convince you of the two's sincerity — Beyoncé herself shows up to sing slash talk about how she felt about the whole thing!
And by Beyoncé we mean Maya Rudolph!!!
This cold open may have been our fave, but there were more laughs to be had! See which skit, err, short that Pharrell Williams guest starred in, as well!
Check all of that out and more in the videos
