In a new interview with Alec Baldwin on his podcast and WNYC radio show Here’s The Thing, Kristen Wiig did little to dispel the rumors that she’s leaving “Saturday Night Live” at the end of the season.
Wiig confirmed her contract expires this year, but said she doesn’t know whether her time on the NBC program is “winding down,” as Baldwin put it. She said, “Well, everyone has to leave.”
Wiig added, “I will say that when I do leave it’s not because I’m sick of it and not because I see something better or anything like that. It’s just that it’s time.”
Wiig, who’s currently in her seventh year with SNL, broke out on the big screen in 2011 with her hit comedy “Bridesmaids,” which she co-wrote.
Last week, Us Weekly reported that Wiig and fellow cast members Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis will exit “SNL” next month.
