Abby Elliott’s four-year stint on Saturday Night Live is ending. She says she won’t continue on NBC’s late-night sketch comedy series this fall. Elliott, the first second-generation SNL cast member, tested the sitcom waters in March when she was cast as the female lead in Fox’s comedy pilot Ben & Kate aka Ned Fox Is My Manny. The actress, daughter of SNL alum Chris Elliott, left the pilot after the table read and was replaced by Dakota Johnson. She returned to SNL for the remainder of the season, while Ben & Kate went to series. Elliott’s memorable impersonations on SNL included Angelina Jolie, Anna Faris, Rachel Maddow, Khloe Kardashian, Zooey Deschanel and Brittany Murphy. Of the three SNL veterans whose contracts were up in May, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg have already announced that they won’t return, while Jason Sudeikis recently hinted that he may leave too but claimed that he was still undecided.
