When Saturday Night Live returned this week for the start of its 45th season, there was one comedian missing in action.
While Davidson, 25, is still a member of SNL, which he has been on since 2014, another project kept him away from the action this week.
It is unclear when Davidson will return to SNL.
Davidson first joined the cast of SNL in 2014 and has since become a regular fixture of the popular “Weekend Update” segment.
Since the show was last on the air, the actor and comedian also made his modeling debut, appearing in an Alexander Wang show in June.
Although the pair have yet to confirm their relationship status, they have been spotted out and about together multiple times.
As Davidson and Qualley, 24, touched down at the Marco Polo airport in Venice earlier this month, a source told PEOPLE, they looked “very happy” together.

“They were very smiley and flirty. Some fans approached them and they happily signed autographs,” the source said. “They left the airport together for the same hotel.”
A day later, the SNL comedian and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood actress, who is the daughter of Andie MacDowell, were photographed at the premiere of the actress’ film Seberg at the Venice Film Festival.
