After sending Liz Lemon fans into a tizzy by inconveniently telling a reporter that “next year is our last year of [30 Rock]” – while Tina Fey is promoting her book, and while Fey is five months pregnant – Alec Baldwin took to the Huffington Post this morning to clear the air and toe the company line:
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.
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.”
