It’s official:  KRISTEN WIIG is not coming back to “Saturday Night Live” next season.  This isn’t a huge shock . . . she’s been on for seven seasons, and there’s been a lot of talk recently that she’s ready to move on.

On Saturday, “SNL” confirmed her departure in a classy tribute at the end of the season finale.  It was a “graduation” skit, featuring host MICK JAGGER. Basically, it was just Kristen individually dancing with the other cast members to the ROLLING STONES songs “She’s a Rainbow” and “Ruby Tuesday”.  The celebration included a few former cast members and “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels. There have been a lot of awkward and acrimonious exits on “SNL” . . . so this is pretty cool to see.  Kristen has been invaluable to the show, and she won’t be easy to replace. By the way, “Us” magazine “broke” the story about Kristen leaving last month . . . and they also claimed that ANDY SAMBERG and JASON SUDEIKIS were leaving. After the finale, you have to assume that they’re NOT leaving, or haven’t decided if they’re coming back or not.  It’d be pretty strange to give Kristen this big tribute and not even mention Andy and Jason, if they’re leaving, too.

You can find video on the “SNL” website HERE.
