Well it now seems as if he will have lots of time to relax and enjoy, during a Friday interview with The New York Times he had confirmed that he will not be returning to Saturday Night Live in the fall.
“It’s an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life,” Samberg, 33, told the paper. “Obviously it’s not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back.”
Adding that it was
“one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made,” the actor — who joined the how’s ensemble in 2005– said he sought advice from Kristen Wiig, who is also departing after seven years.
“She kept saying it just feels like it’s her time,” he shared. “I connect with that. Something about it just feels like it’s the moment. My contracts up and I did so much more than I ever thought I would ever even do.”
