Jason Sudeikis has once again hinted that he is leaving Saturday Night Live.
The actor has been rumoured to be following Kristin Wiig and Andy Samberg in departing the NBC series, but he had declined to offer any specifics in recent months.
Sudeikis again stopped short of confirming a possible SNL exit in an interview with Men's Journal (via The New York Daily News), but it was revealed that his current contract has expired.
"I've left places before. This is very, very different," Sudeikis said of possibly leaving the sketch comedy show.
The actor also addressed his emotional demeanour in SNL's farewell to Wiig in the season finale, saying: "Goodbyes are tough."
Sudeikis went on to admit that he is conflicted about his eight seasons on Saturday Night Live, where he became known for his popular impressions of George W Bush, Mitt Romney and Billy Ray Cyrus.
"[SNL is] an amazing job and a horrible job," he explained.
The show's producer Lorne Michaels previously claimed that no additional cast decisions about Saturday Night Live would be made until July.
"I'm not really certain myself [what the changes will be]. I know there will be some," Michaels said in May. "It's just the nature of our work that no-one talks about it until the season is done."
Saturday Night Live returns later this year on NBC.
