(NEW YORK) — In a new interview with Alec Baldwin on his podcast Here’s The Thing, Kristen Wiig does little to dispel the rumors that she’s leaving Saturday Night Live at the end of the season.
Wiig confirms her contract expires this year, but she says she doesn’t know whether her time on the NBC program is “winding down,” as Baldwin puts it.
She says, “Well, everyone has to leave.”
Wiig adds, “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.”
Wiig, who’s currently in her seventh year with SNL, broke out on the big screen in 2011 with her hit comedy Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote.
Last week, Us Weekly reported that Wiig and fellow cast members Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis will exit SNL next month.
