HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – MARCH 18: Pete Davidson attends the premiere of Netflix’s ‘The Dirt” at the Arclight Hollywood on March 18, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

Viewers got a quick glimpse of him this week, though, during “Weekend Update.” Davidson missed last week’s season premiere because he was shooting scenes for The Suicide Squad in Atlanta. Davidson is off Instagram, so it’s unclear exactly where he is now, but it’s safe to assume he might still be filming in Georgia.
