In an interview with NewsOne, Murphy says he’ll take part in next month’s 40th anniversary special after decades of being estranged from Saturday Night Live. “It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it,” Murphy says. “They’re actually having a 40th anniversary, I think, in two weeks. I’m going to that, and that’ll be the first time I’ve been back since I left.” NBC has yet to confirm if Murphy will indeed be back on SNL.”
