Three more cast members of "Saturday Night Live" will not return to the late-night sketch-comedy show's 40th season this fall.

The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday that featured players Noël Wells, 27, and John Milhiser, 32, did not have their contracts renewed.

The news comes a day after another featured player, Brooks Wheelan, 27, tweeted, "Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke . . . FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!"

In December, Fox had announced that cast member Nasim Pedrad, 32, had joined the network's upcoming sitcom "Mulaney."

NBC did not comment on the report.
