In a move that will hopefully, finally, satisfy the obbsessive fans begging and offering sexual favours on Twitter, Jason Sudeikis has opted to return to NBC's 'Saturday Night Live.' News broke about the prominent cast member's plans and earlier today NBC confirmed that Sudeikis will be front and centre when the show returns this coming Saturday, September 15th.
Sudeikis had remained silent regarding his possible return all summer, causing fans of his (and those of us who have fans of his on our social media feeds) constant torment and anguish. Some fans have tweeted at him that they are unaware how they will go on with their lives if he didn't return to the long-running flagship program. The thirty-six-year-old Sudeikis strung everyone along as long as possible, but with a scant three days notice, his rabid and vocal fanbase can hopefully rest easy (or perhaps celebrate in a fusilade of champagne).
Other 'Saturday Night Live' cast members who completed their contracts when Sudeikis' expired have decided to step away from the weekly grind, as Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg have departed for the sunny skies of Hollywood (after the success of 'Bridesmaids' and the lukewarm disappointment of 'That's My Boy,' respectively).
No sooner had SNL fans breathed a collective sigh of relief before Lorne Michaels told the New York Times that Sudeikis could only be a cast member until January. With five upcoming feature films on his docket (not including 'The Campaign,' in theatres now), it seems it is only a matter of time before Sudeikis 'graduates' and follows Wiig out West.
