UPDATE (Sept. 12): NBC has confirmed to Laughspin that Sudeikis is, indeed, returning to Saturday Night Live.
If the newly-updated cast list on the official Saturday Night Live page is any indication, Jason Sudeikis will be returning to the show for its 38th season. As you probably know, it’s long been rumored that Sudeikis might leave the show this summer. Newly hired players Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson are all included on the “2012-2013″ list on the show’s “about” page (see below). Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott have all been removed; Each left the show within the last few months. And Sudeikis has not been removed. So, is it safe to day he’ll be back when the show returns this Saturday? We think so.
