Is 30 Rock Ending? So, Says Alec Baldwin
All good things must come to an end – including NBC’s “30 Rock,” which, according to star Alec Baldwin, will wrap things up in 2012.
“I will tell you one thing, and that is our show next year is our last year of the show,” he told Vulture. “Our contracts are expired (in 2012), and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing.”
But, much like his character Jack Donaghy, Baldwin might have said more than he should have (reps for the show declined to comment on his remarks), and he later wrote an apology of sorts on the Huffington Post.
“Gosh. I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope ’30 Rock’ goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires,” he said.
“Next year hopefully won’t be the last. Kenneth can run the network. Jenna will get her own talk show. Tracy will become Mayor of New York. Then resign to go raise exotic reptiles. And Lemon will go do … just about anything she sets her mind to.
“Here’s to five more seasons.”
