After one season as a featured player on “SNL,” Luke Null will not be returning to Lorne Michaels’ sketch-comedy series.

Null hardly made it to air in the 2017-18 season. He was hired for Season 43 alongside Chris Redd and Heidi Gardner, and is now this summer’s first casualty from the cast.

Prior to his brief “SNL” tenure, Null was a regular at Chicago’s iO Theater, where he performed with improv and sketch team the Newport Hounds.

Watch what is probably Null’s best sketch from his one-and-done run via the video above. At the very least, it shows off his singing ability, which is always a plus in the world of “Saturday Night Live.”

A rep for “Saturday Night Live” did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on this story.

We do not yet have a premiere date for Season 44 of “SNL.”
