Live from New York, it’s… well, not Brooks Wheelan. Not anymore.

Sources confirm to EW that Saturday Night Live newbie Wheelan, who joined the cast in September 2013 as a featured player, will not be returning for SNL’s upcoming 40th season. In fact, Wheelan himself broke the news on Twitter:

Though Wheelan joined the cast last season alongside a slew of other new hires, viewers noticed that the comedian suffered from a significant lack of screen time as the season wore on (other new cast members Beck Bennett, Mike O’Brien, and Kyle Mooney appeared to earn more).

SNL had no comment about the Wheelan news.
