Alec Baldwin: '30 Rock’ Will End Next Season (Update)

Actor tells New York magazine that “next year is our last year of the show”

Did Alec Baldwin drop a bomb about the future "30 Rock"?

The actor told New York Magazine's Vulture at a fundraising gala in New York on Tuesday that "next year is our last year of the show."

"I will tell you one thing," he said, according to the site. "And that is our show next year is our last year of the show. … Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina [Fey] is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."

An NBC insider, however, tells TheWrap there have been no talks about the show ending.

Could it be a Jack Donaghy-worthy negotiating tactic? It doesn't seem like it.

Baldwin has long said he would leave the show in 2012, and expressed that is "very, very interested" in running for office.

But this is the first whisper of an end-date for the Emmy-winning NBC sitcom, now in its fifth season.
