SNL Cast Changes: Creator Says 'I Know There Will Be Some'
All good things must come to an end.
"Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels confirmed there will be casting changes on the show next season, but he's not sure who will be leaving.
"I'm not really certain myself," he told reporters during a conference call Wednesday on the casting changes. "I know there will be some. It's just the nature of our work that no one talks about it until the season is done. Needless to say, I'd like everyone to stay."
Two sources told US Weekly on April 4 that stars Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis will be leaving the show after this season.
"It will be a huge blow to the show," one insider said. "Without Andy's video shorts and Kristen saving every skit, they'll need help!"
But there will be additions to the "SNL" cast. Lorne said "for sure" new cast members will be joining next season.
"Every summer we go out and make the rounds of Chicago, L.A. and New York, and various other places they do this kind of work. And that always leads to new people on the show," he said. "We've always been about bringing new people in."
