Brooks Wheelan Fired from Saturday Night Live

Brooks Wheelan will not be a part of the cast of Saturday Night Live for its next season. SNL is a long-running and hit NBC show that will premiere its landmark 40th season next fall.

However, the cast will change again as the boss Lorne Michaels has already promised. And the first cast member that will not be part of the 40th season is stand-up comedian Brooks Wheelan.

Wheelan has announced his getting sacked on his twitter account. He posted a tweet on July 14th about the fact. See the tweet below.

A source also confirmed to E! News that, "Wheelan will not be returning and casting changes are normal." However, NBC has not yet commented on the casting changes.

27-year-old Wheelan joined Saturday Night Live before the premiere of season 39 went on the air. But the Iowa native is not a series regular. In fact, he frequently appeared on the show, mostly in the Weekend Update segment. He will not appear in the next season of SNL.

But Wheelan is getting sympathy and love from Judd Apatow, famous comic writer, producer, and director. Apatow posted a tweet in response to Wheelan's. See his tweet below.

Brooks Wheelan also replied to Apatow in his comic style. See his tweet below.  

Saturday Night Live has already seen a big change in season 39 when Seth Meyers left to host Late Night. Brooks Wheelan is not the only one who joined SNL in season 39. Beck Bennett, Noel Wells, Kyle Mooney, Mike O'Brien and John Milhiser also joined SNL ahead of season 39. Sasheer Zamata joined SNL cast in the very midst of season 39.

Brooks Wheelan's departure marks the first change for the next SNL season. Let see, who will go next. Till then, stay tuned for more updates.
