Christina Applegate Exits Up All Night

by at . Comments

The Up All Night reconstruction just got A LOT more complicated.

With that sitcom already on hiatus, and with NBC planning to bring is back as a multi-camera series with a studio audience, Deadline reports star Christina Applegate will not be returning to the show. At all.

Reagan's Not Boring

She cites this creative change as the reason why.

“It’s been a great experience working  on Up All Night, but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors,” Applegate said. “Working with Lorne Michaels has been a dream come true and I am grateful he brought me into his TV family.  I will miss the cast, producers and crew, and wish them the best always.”

Deadline claims NBC is somehow still surging ahead with the reboot and may be eyeing Lisa Kudrow as a replacement for Applegate.

We'll update this story as more news breaks - but it may be time for NBC to cut the chord, don't you think?
