• Pete Davidson said he doesn't know the plans for his stint on "SNL" yet
  • The comedian has to talk to Lorne Michaels because he has no idea what's going on
  • Davidson shared that the last season was his favorite so far

Pete Davidson got candid about his future on "Saturday Night Live" amid rumors he won't be returning for the next season.

The comedian sat down with Gold Derby and addressed the rumors about his gig on "SNL." Davidson, who appeared on "Weekend Update" during the Season 46 finale, delivered an emotional monologue about "growing up" on the show, which led many to speculate that he would be moving on from the comedy series.

"Speaking for myself, I don't know what the plan is," he said. "Everything is kind of up in the air right now just depending on scheduling. It is my seventh year, and that's what the contract is usually for."

"Right now it's still, it's all up in the air. I gotta talk to Lorne [Michaels]. It's a big cast; there's a lot of new guys in there, and there's a lot of great new talent that it's their time to shine. I have no idea what's going on right now," he continued.

Davidson looked back at the Season 46 finale and admitted that he was very emotional at the time. He also shared it could be due to the COVID-19 pandemic as he recounted how he had grown so much on the show.

"It was really emotional. I've worked with these guys for a quarter of my life," he explained. "I started there with acne and left with tattoos. It was a very crazy, long period of time and I wasn't ready for the season to end yet because I was really having so much fun...The last show was a full audience for the first time and just hearing that full laugh was so emotional. It made me very emotional to be able to perform in front of a full crowd again."

Davidson added that the last season was "my favorite season so far." He shared that they had fun and wrote weird and silly sketches because everybody was stressed out. He described Season 46 as the "weirdest batch of sketches" and the "weirdest circumstances." However, it was also "the most memorable season I've had there."

Davidson's last stand on the show was him playing the role of Chad the astronaut with Elon Musk. His character was popular for his one-word responses. In the controversial episode, Chad traveled to space with Musk and when he removed his helmet, his head exploded.

For him, the character was the "easiest thing ever" to portray. He also found it fun because he didn't need to memorize lines.

"The fact that we got to close it out with Elon before Chad dies is pretty great," he said. "I don't think you could have a better trajectory - you start with Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a pool boy and he ends on Mars with Elon Musk. It's a great trajectory."
