Leslie Jones Is Leaving Saturday Night Live

Leslie Jones confirmed on Twitter yesterday that she is leaving NBC’s Saturday Night Live after five seasons on the sketch comedy series.  She uploaded to Twitter images of the various characters she has played on SNL and gave thanks to producer and creator Lorne Michaels alongside her co-stars.  “You not only have my loyalty but you have my heart too! You have shown me skills I never imagined I had. I leave a better performer because of you,” Jones said about Michaels.  Jones was reported as leaving SNL in August. She is set to host a reboot of classic game show Supermarket Sweep and will be starring in a stand-up comedy special on Netflix in 2020.
