Though not as central of a cast member, Elliott adds to the high-profile departures of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg from the sketch institution.

Her exit also concludes a rare "SNL" legacy: Elliott's father, Chris Elliott, was a cast member for the 1994-1995 season. Her grandfather, Bob Elliott, was half of the famous Bob and Ray comedy team.

The 38th season of "Saturday Night Live" premieres Sept. 15.
