Will Forte not returning to 'SNL'
'MacGruber' star and the NBC sketch show parted amicably
Will Forte will not be coming back to "Saturday Night Live" when its 36th season begins next month.
According to the New York Times, the main reason for Forte's departure from the NBC late-night sketch show was because he wished to pursue different projects. Both sides parted amicably.
Forte, who most recently starred on the big screen as his popular "SNL" character MacGruber, joined the show in 2002.
