Even though we'd recently reported the possibility and it was pretty clear from the hilarious and heartwarming send-off song
Fred Armisen Ian Rubbish played on the SNL season finale this Spring, Fred has now totes admitted he will DEF not be returning to the show. He says:
"I think it's clear. I didn't do any kind of official announcement, but I really felt like it was obvious."
After 11 seasons on a weekly program notorious for all-nighters, we’d be taking a break to catch up on sleep and our DVR catalog and online shopping.
But that’s why we’re not Fred Armisen!!!
"Portlandia started to pull me away more and more, schedule-wise, and I just felt like it'd be nice to focus on it a little more and go into the fall a bit more with shooting."
Good luck, Fred!!!!
