"I haven't heard any official word so far, but I love this show so much," the actress said of Mulaney. "I have an apartment in L.A. and, as far as I know, I'm in L.A. now," she added. (Mulaney films in Los Angeles, while SNL films live in New York City.)

Pedrad further hinted she's moved on by adding that most SNL cast members join the sketch comedy series in hopes of it leading to a bigger opportunity. The actress added that if there were a way to do both, she would. "But I think we're all in with his show," she added.
