Bryant commented, “I think there is a world where we can squeeze a couple more [seasons] in. I’m not going to stay at SNL forever, even though I love it — it’s just really grueling to do both. Particularly this fall, we were editing and doing all the music supervision and all that stuff while I was at SNL. So I would do that in the morning, then go to SNL and work all night. And I can’t sustain that forever. I can’t do it.”

Needless to say, we’re excited about Hulu’s decision to continue the show.
