Andy Samberg Won’t Be Returning to SNL

Andy SambergFirst Kristen Wiig, and now this?!

After rumors of his departure and the premiere of "Lazy Sunday 2," (with lyrics like "On these New York streets I hone my fake rap penmanship / That’s how it began, and that’s how I’m-a finish it," could it be any more obvious?), Andy Samberg has confirmed that he will not be returning as a cast member on Saturday Night Live next season.

“It’s an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life. Obviously it’s not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back," he said.

While Samberg claims that it was "one of the hardest decisions [he's] ever made," he revealed that he had some help from fellow cast member Wiig: "She kept saying it just feels like it’s her time. I connect with that. Something about it just feels like it’s the moment. My contract’s up and I did so much more than I ever thought I would ever even do."

Kristen Wiig Leaves SNL?

Kristen WiigKristen Wiig held back tears as she made what is believed to be her last appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

The final sketch during the season finale saw the actress - who has been a cast member on the show for seven years - don a cap and gown with guest host Mick Jagger acting as high school principal during a graduation scene. Kristen's character was singled out as "one particular student who is leaving this summer," and she then danced with the Rolling Stones rocker, executive producer Lorne Michaels and other cast members to the group's hit "She's a Rainbow."

Kristen then struggled to keep her emotions in check as the show's full ensemble, including Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm, appeared to sing "Ruby Tuesday, which features the line :Still I'm gonna miss you."

Network NBC have not made any official announcement about Kristen leaving the show, or commented on the rumors that Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg are also departing as program regulars.
