TORONTO — Brooks Wheelan announced late Monday he will not be returning to Saturday Night Live.

“Had a blast and loved every second of it,” Wheelan tweeted.

“I’m totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT!”

Wheelan, 27, was added to the cast of SNL last season.

Director Judd Apatow was quick to offer his support, tweeting: “You will have the Robert Downey Jr. post SNL career! (minus the painful drug addiction). Rock on friend!”

Wheelan replied by joking that he was looking forward to the Iron Man reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032.
