Could next season be 30 Rock's last? It is according to series star Alec Baldwin, who last night told New York Magazine's Vulture blog that the award winning sitcom will end next year.
"I will tell you one thing, and that is our show next year is our last year of the show," said Baldwin. "Our contracts are expired (in 2012), and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."
Perhaps he let some inside info slip, but sources at the network say there have been no discussions to end the show. Whether Baldwin's comments end up being accurate will probably not be known for some time.
30 Rock will be wrapping up its fifth season this month, with its last two episodes scheduled to air April 14th and 21st. NBC renewed the series for a sixth season late last year.
