Abby Elliott exiting 'SNL' after four seasons
NEW YORK (AP) — After four seasons, Abby Elliott is not returning to "Saturday Night Live."
Her exit was first reported Wednesday by the comedy website Splitsider. NBC declined to comment, but a source familiar with casting changes at the show confirmed Elliott's departure.
Though not as central of a cast member, Elliott adds to the high-profile departures of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg from the sketch institution.
Her exit also concludes a rare "SNL" legacy: Elliott's father, Chris Elliott, was a cast member for the 1994-1995 season. Her grandfather, Bob Elliott, was half of the famous Bob and Ray comedy team.
The 38th season of "Saturday Night Live" premieres Sept. 15.
