Abby Elliot is leaving SNLThe Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Abby Elliott will not be returning to Saturday Night Live next season. She has booked a lead in a new Fox Pilot.


I always thought Abby Elliott was super cute, and I liked a few of her characters, but she just never really separated herself from the rest of the SNL cast. She never took off with an original or memorable character. Even now, I can see her as one of the Kardashian and Angelina Jolie, but not much else comes to mind.


It may be a blessing in disguise. Lots of women tank on SNL and go on to have huge careers. Look at Sarah Silverman. Abby Elliott is only 25 years old, I’d bet her best years are still ahead of her.

SNL is losing a lot of cast members this off season. Andy Samberg, who had been with the series since 2005, officially parted ways with SNL in June; Kristen Wiig announced last season that the 37th cycle of SNLwould be her last and there are rumors of other potentail departures. So, stay tune.
