And it's just so bittersweet!
Sure, Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig are moving on to bigger and brighter careers, but we can only imagine how mournful they feel leaving the family.
Saturday Night Live is an institution with members coming and going, but it's such an exclusive staple in the comedy world, the bond every cast-member shares must be beyond comprehension.
We wouldn't even be surprised if they did special traditions every Saturday night after the show!! Ha!
ANYWAY! Former SNL lover and leaver Will Forte has this to say to the newest alums who are parting ways with Lorne this year, saying:
"It just takes time. It's really sad when you first leave because it's such a wonderful experience that it's weird once the show starts up again and you're not on it. It's really, really hard for the first season, but especially until Christmas. It's really hard to bring yourself to watch the show. But at the same time, you are rooting for your friends on the show so you do watch it."
Sigh.. well WE have to mourn them too!
But like we've said before, it'll be WAY easier if they keep making a ton of movies like Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, and Adam Sandler did after they left.
