Alec Baldwin Says 30 ROCK’s Upcoming Seventh Season Will Be Its Last

     April 16, 2012


This afternoon at a gathering of The National Press Club, during some lobbying for Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit group that advocates for increased federal funding of the arts, The Huffington Post reports that Alec Baldwin dropped some good and bad news for fans of the NBC comedy series 30 Rock. Apparently the actor will definitely be sticking around for the series’ entire seventh season this fall, but apparently that season of the Tina Fey show will be the last. Honestly, it makes sense considering the show would really lose one of its strongest parts if Baldwin were to really leave, and seven seasons is enough for almost any series, especially a comedy that runs an average of 24 episodes a season. The series is still going strong with outrageous jokes and hilarity, and while I’ll be sad to see it go, I’d rather see it finish on top rather than puttering out and getting canceled.

    “I’d rather see it finish on top rather than puttering out and getting canceled” totally agree with you on this.. I love this show

  • Edward Lee

    Sure it is, Alec. Sure it is. I think this is your third stated last season.

  • Bill

    Love this show. And seeing as how Tina Fey isn’t just the star but also the creative head behind the show I guess this confirms the 7th season will be the last. I can’t very well imagine Fey will allow the show to exist/wallow after Jack Donaghy leaves. No matter what they could do 30 Rock would not be the same show after Baldwin leaves. Keeping the show around after he leaves would be a real dunderheaded move.

    ….I wish the Dunder Mifflin/Sabre group took that thinking to heart.
