After nine season of hilarity, "Saturday Night Live" will bid farewell to longtime cast member Bobby Moynihan.

Moynihan has proven himself to be one of SNL's strongest cast members since he joined in 2008 and has since become one of the most popular and recognizable comedians now on the show.

The series, called "Me, Myself & I", follows one man's life in three different periods of his life.

Oh no! Bobby Moynihan, 40, has been a central member of the Saturday Night Live cast for a whopping 9 seasons. Moynihan will play Alex in present day with Jack Grazer playing young Alex and John Larroquette playing the oldest version.

One of Moynihan's most popular recurring characters on SNL is the "Drunk Uncle". "Among the real-life people he impersonated on the show were Chris Christie, Guy Fieri, and Snooki". CBS released a trailer for the show on Wednesday during its Upfront presentation. Kapital Entertainment is producing in association with Warner Bros. "Baywatch" star Dwayne Johnson is set to host with musical guest and new "American Idol" judge Katy Perry.

He'll be joined on Me, Myself and I by executive producers Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and Dan Kopelman, the latter of which is also a writer on the show.

In addition to starring in his new show on CBS, Moynihan will also voice an imaginary blue winged horse named Happy in the upcoming SyFy show "Happy, ' which also stars Chris Meloni".
