After tweeting that Jason Sudeikis would be among three high-profile departures from Saturday Night Live, cast member Jay Pharoah removed the post – but not before it was archived on Favstar.

Jason Sudeikis Envisions Life After 'Saturday Night Live'

While this past week's season finale officially marked the last episodes for longtime players Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, there has been no official news regarding Sudeikis' much-rumored departure. Yesterday morning, however, Pharoah tweeted the news that many expected: "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.."

The eight-season veteran was rumored to be leaving last year, but returned for a stint that was initially supposed to last at least through January, but ended up extending through the entire season.
