Pete Davidson skipped out on “Saturday Night Live” to go on a date with Kim Kardashian as the NBC show faces an unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak. 

The comedian, 28, and reality star, 41, were spotted going to the movies on Staten Island together Saturday evening.

They arrived at the theater at around 7 p.m., but it’s unclear what film they saw.

Scott Disick, Disick’s friend Chris Reda and another male were also with Davidson and Kardashian, according to a source.

Earlier in the afternoon, Davidson was spotted entering a hotel in Manhattan, where Kardashian is currently staying. 

He arrived there with Disick at around 6 p.m., sparking speculation that he would not be attending rehearsals for “SNL,” which usually take place around 8 p.m.

Kardashian’s SUV was then spotted leaving the hotel around 6: 20 p.m. and headed toward Staten Island.

The Post learned Saturday afternoon that “SNL” was on the verge of canceling tonight’s final episode of the iconic sketch show’s 2021 season — set to be hosted by Paul Rudd with musical guest Charli XCX — due to an in-house outbreak of positive COVID-19 cases after a set insider told us “four actors” tested positive — and “three others” called out because they were “fearful” about coming to NBC Studios at 30 Rockefeller Center.

A source said the “show must go on but don’t expect to see Colin Jost, Sarah Sherman or (Aristotle) Athari.”

An insider told The Post that legendary “SNL” alum Tina Fey was in talks “to fill in” at her old “Weekend Update” seat for Jost.

Additionally, Charli XCX officially bailed on her performance, saying she was “devastated and heartbroken” by the turn of events.
