Baldwin 30 Rock Finale TV Alec Baldwin Reveals 30 Rock Series End Date?

Alec Baldwin, rarely one to watch his words, may have let slip that the end of 30 Rock is not too far away.

According to Baldwin, he will continue on the NBC series, which is currently in the middle of its sixth season, until next year’s seventh but also states that 2013 will be the final season for the hit show. The news follows a less than friendly series of tweets from the award-winner last week.

What started the ball of melodrama rolling was the alleged stalking of Baldwin by a struggling Canadian actress named Genevieve Sabourin. Apparently the 30 Rock star may have gone out on a few dates with Sabourin, but claims she turned Fatal Attraction after news broke of Baldwin’s engagement to a 29-year-old yoga instructor. The juicy stalking story has caused a lot of unwanted attention for Baldwin, even from his employer network NBC, which provoked Baldwin to angrily tweet:

@alecbaldwin: “The television crew camped outside my apt said they were with the Today Show. #howthemightyhavefallen”

@alecbaldwin:” I haven’t appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?”

@alecbaldwin: “A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show?”

Baldwin concluded his Twitter tirade with: “I think I’m leaving NBC just in time.” This final tweet caused a backlash for the actor, from media and fans alike, prompting speculation as to if/when he was going to abandon the NBC fan favorite. However, E! reports that Baldwin backtracked a bit by saying the reason he joined 30 Rock in the first place was out of respect for NBC’s best programing legacy and reconfirmed that he will remain on 30 Rock - but that season seven will be the last for the series.

So there you have it, straight from Jack Donaghy’s unfiltered mouth but, it should be noted, neither NBCUniversal or any of the show’s other stars (including Tina Fey or Tracy Morgan) have given an official word on the subject. Baldwin has previously claimed he would leave the show before and that the sixth (and current) season would be the last - which clearly did not happened. So forlorn fans of 30 Rock can take the news with a grain of salt until an official statement is handed down.

  1. It would be kind of interesting to see a season of 30 Rock without Jack. See how Liz & crew deal without him. But if it does end at Season 7 I’ll be fine with that.

  2. A season without Jack would be a disaster! Baldwin is too good! I would love to see Tracy leave though, i don’t find him funny at all!

    • Really? I’ve thought he’s got better in the last few seasons, to the point where he’s pretty hysterical now.
      Mainly due to the writing though.

  3. I kind of hope this show never ends, it’s just too good.

  4. Even though I think the show is as strong as ever if it ends after season 7 I’m fine with it. I much rather a show go out on top rather than limp along to an eventual cancelation.
    I’ll admit though that Baldwin has become quite annoying. Before 30 Rock his career was pretty much dried up and if it wasn’t for SNL he would have really disappeared.
    So I wish he’d stop acting like he’s above everyone or the show because it was the show that saved his career not the other way around.

    • Although I can’t stand Baldwin’s arrogance, left-leaning politics, or big mouth, I have to admit, he delivers a good comedic performance with great mannerism and timing. The show is beginning to feel like it has gone on too long, however, and it should come to an end. It was better in the early years.

  5. Glad to hear that he is staying on board for another season because I don’t think the show could make it without him.

    I still think the show has enough steam left for another season and I think that next season they should go totally nuts. I love this show and have not been disappointed with any of the seasons thus far. Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin have been great together and its gonna be sad to watch the show end but I’m glad to hear that they are not continuing without Alec Baldwin
