The cast of "Saturday Night Live" could be on the verge of even more turnover. According to a report in The New York Post, Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis are both likely to leave "SNL" after the end of this season.

According to the Post report, Armisen is departing and Sudeikis "probably" is as well.

The report comes just a few days after "SNL" veteran Bill Hader announced his departure, and a week after head "SNL" writer and "Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers was named the new host of Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night."

In the New York Times article that broke the news of Hader's "SNL" departure, Lorne Michaels was asked if Armisen and Sudeikis had decided whether they were going to stay or go. He replied, “I don’t think so. I think they’re making their decisions, and we’ll know soon enough.” Both comedians are in the last year of their "SNL" contracts.

In January, Armisen insisted he wasn't looking to leave "SNL" anytime soon. "I thrive most when I have to juggle things," he told ETOnline. "The more I keep myself occupied and jump from thing to thing, the more I think it enriches both. I'm having such a good time on 'SNL,' it's still so much fun."

NBC declined to confirm or deny the report when reached for comment by The Huffington Post. Personal representatives for Armisen and Sudeikis also did not return The Huffington Post's request for comment.
