New York - Tonight's episode of NBC's 38th season of 'Saturday Night Live' will be the last for Bill Hader, but does Hader's departure mean that Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis will follow?
NBC's "Saturday Night Live" will air its 38th season finale tonight, and the episode will be marked by the departure of Bill Hader - one of the more popular performers on the show.
Hader, known for his Al Pacino and James Carville impressions and for his versatile SNL characters - most notably Stefon, Herb Welch, and Lyle Round - told GC that he plans to sleep more and to spend more time with his family, as US Magazine reported.
NBC has promoted the SNL season finale as a venue for musical guest Kanye West, however Hader's departure has driven rumors that both Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis could be leaving as well.
"Tonight's episode will unfortunately mark Hader's last (it could also be the last time we see Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis as cast members, too)," Aly Semigran reported on
If the Hader / Armisen / Sudeikis trio were to depart together, it would likely be a devastating loss for the "Saturday Night Live" cast and for the overall comedic quality of the show.
The New York Post first reported the story on the anticipated Armisen and Sudeikis departures, noting also that Seth Meyers will be leaving to host "Late Night" in February 2014.
