Actor Alec Baldwin is backtracking after declaring his hit TV comedy 30 Rock will end next year (12), insisting he wants the show to go on "forever".
Baldwin let the news slip at a fundraising event in New York on Tuesday (05Apr11), when he claimed series co-creator, writer and star Tina Fey wanted to move away from the small screen and concentrate on making movies.
Hours later Fey revealed she is pregnant with her second child.
The actor told New York Magazine, "Our show next year is our last year of the show. Our contracts are expired, and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing... She'll be great."
Representatives for 30 Rock refused to comment on the remarks, but now Baldwin is working fast to set the record straight and clear up any confusion caused, and he's adamant he was only referring to his own future on the series.
In a blog for the Huffington Post, he writes, "Gosh. I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope 30 Rock goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires.
"Next year hopefully won't be the last... Here's to five more seasons."
