Kristen Wiig Opens Up About Abandoning snl

Last week, tragedy struck Studio 8H!

Super sad reports claim the only one of the funniest people on SNL, Kristen Wiig, will NOT be returning to the show next season.

Obviously, this is going to be super hard on fans of the show — but Wiig seems to think that she will be the one most hurt by her absence from the cast. She explains:

"This is my seventh year and that's my family. It's my heart. It's New York to me."

Then, why doesn't she just make us, Lorne Michaels and herself happy and stay??

KW, who has not officially confirmed her departure, says that when she leaves it won't be because "wants" to. Wiig explains:

"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. When I do leave, it will be the hardest thing…you're there for a week and on Saturday night you're sad because you leave these people. You have to leave things that you love."

But you don't have to!!

We totes get that there are bigger and better things for the Oscar-nominated writer. Howeves, we really really really want her to stay.

Will U watch SNL after she leaves??

    I will definitely continue To watch SNL! It Will absolutely not be the same without Wiig. But we still have Hader, Samberg, and sudekis until they leave… Feels like that time isn't too far away either. THEN I will stop watching!

    How can you make a joke about her being the only funny one when you were bitching that the other really funny ones could be leaving too? Her leaving would not be anywhere near as bad as Samberg and Sudeikis leaving too, and if they all leave, Hader is right around the corner. #DarkDays

    She is a hotty.. and congrats to her! She has totally has carried this show for quite a number of years as it has slowly tumbled down in popularity due to it's lack of originality and just somewhat honestly boring product it has offered.

    Super sad, super hard, totes….. WHY THE FUCK DO I STILL COME AND READ THIS DUMB SHIT?
    As far as SNL, they suck, they improve, they suck, they improve, they suck again. So big deal, right now, it's sucking and has for a while

    Actually,I want all the SNLers pretty much GONE. The show is NOT funny anymore when the so called performers can't keep a straight face during the "funny" segments. BORING

    seriously, she's the only funny one! bummer!

    Why is this so shocking? SNL has ALWAYS been a jumping off point for comedians/actors. Lorne Michaels discovers them, they get put on the show, become famous then they move onto bigger and better things. That's just the way it works.



  9. 9

    I can't watch it anymore with her or Andy Samberg. They are the funniest people on there.

    Of course I will. I have watched SNL after several greats have left, why would I stop after her? The SNL cast is ever changing, as it should be. When newbies come in people often hate them at first, and then after years on the show they grow in what they do and everyone loves them, and then they leave. It's been happening since the show first began and will continue to happen until the show ends. Love her, and Love SNL!
