Following a number of high-profile departures, another "Saturday Night Live" cast member is leaving the show, according to a fellow cast member.
EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Jay Pharoah indicated in a tweet that Jason Sudeikis is departing the show — but that tweet has since been deleted, according to the report.
Referring to departing cast members Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, Pharoah wrote: "Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on..”
After "Saturday Night Live" said farewell to both Hader and Armisen last week, some fans thought it meant that Sudeikis would return to the show next season. A representative for "SNL" didn’t immediately return EW’s request for comment, the story says.
