No! Leslie Jones is Leaving ‘SNL’
We’re sad to report that Leslie Jones is quitting Saturday Night Live after five seasons.
According to Page Six, the comic, 51, recently scored a role in Eddie Murphy’s Coming To America sequel as well as her own Netflix special. One source told the outlet, “Leslie has chosen to depart as she has several upcoming projects in the works — and she thought it was the right time to go.”
Kate McKinnon will be returning, however.
Leslie was originally hired as a writer on the show, Page Six added, and made appearances on the “Weekend Update” segment before being named a full-time cast member.
We’re going to miss you Leslie!
