Is Jason Sudeikis leaving "Saturday Night Live" before the start of next season? A tweet from cast member Jay Pharaoh indicates that the comedian will be following his former "SNL" co-stars Bill Hader and Fred Armisen out the door.

Although there has been speculation that Sudeikis would end his 8-season "SNL" run after Season 38, nothing definitive has been said by either the actor or the show. Also, a lack of finality for Sudeikis in the season finale on Saturday (May 18) would seem to indicate that he is staying. Hader and Armisen, after all, got strong good-byes in the episode.

What is the evidence that Sudeikis is leaving "SNL" without any big farewell sketches? The Twitter post from Pharoah **https://twitter.com/JayPharoah read:

"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"

Not so fast ... This may be nothing but a mistake and rumors. The tweet, posted by Pharoah after the season finale, was quickly deleted with neither replacement nor explanation. Added to the lack of any word from "Saturday Night Live," and we have to think that Sudeikis' fate is still undetermined.
