It turns out Kristen Wiig wasn't the only one who taped her final Saturday Night Live episode on May 19. After much speculation, Andy Samberg has confirmed that he too has exited the NBC sketch comedy show after seven years and will not be returning as a cast member next season.

The actor, who joined SNL in 2005, is credited with pioneering the show's beloved digital shorts segments along with The Lonely Island bandmates and SNL writers Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

"It's an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life," Samberg, 33, told the New York Times on Friday. “Obviously it’s not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back.”

But will there be more Digital Shorts in the future?

"That’s the kind of thing that I really do hope happens," he said, adding that he hopes to one day host SNL if things work out.

"Something about it just feels like it’s the moment," Samberg continued to explain about his exit. "My contract’s up and I did so much more than I ever thought I would ever even do.”

Check out some of Andy's most memorable digital shorts below.

"D-ck in a Box"

"Shy Ronnie"

    Saturday Night Live hasn't been funny in at least 15 years. If they appealed to anyone, it was the those with little intelligence and a sophomoric sense of humor. How the show stayed on is a testament to NBC's lack of programming at that hour. There's a reason the rats are jumping ship. I don't hold out much hope for the future of comedy or intelligence in our country. Corporate America has successfully dumbed down the population under 40, and SNL has played right into that plan.
