The SNL studio is rapidly emptying.
Abby Elliott, who does impersonations of Angelina Jolie, Khloe Kardashian, Rachel Maddow and Zooey Deschanel, is not returning for the new season, according to reports on Splitsider.com and The Wrap.
Elliott, daughter of SNL alum Chris Elliott, has been with the show since 2008. Andy Samberg and Kristin Wiig have left, and Jason Sudeikis seems to be on the fence about coming back.
Producers at SNL are auditioning new cast members for the show, which begins its 38th season Sept. 15. NBC also will broadcast two prime-time Weekend Update specials Sept. 20 and Sept. 27.
