“Saturday Night Live” bid a proper adieu to cast member Kristen Wiig during the show’s May 19 season finale. But what’s still left out there is the future of Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis, both of whom are rumored to be splitting from the sketch comedy program. To this, EP Lorne Michaels says “you never know.”
In an interview with The Wrap, Michaels explains, “I think everyone gets through the season and just the level of fatigue by the end is just overwhelming, and it’s a very emotional time. I’ve had a rule since the second season, which is to not make any decisions in June. We’ll see in July.”
Us Magazine had previously reported that Wiig, Sudeikis and Samberg were all quitting. But in April, a source tells Zap2it, “No decisions will be made until later this summer.” It appears that they’re holding to at least two-thirds of that promise.
Samberg has been with the show since 2005. Sudeikis joined “SNL” in 2003.
