Comedian Leslie Jones has left Saturday Night Live after five seasons.

Variety reported that Jones chose not to return for the sketch-comedy show's 45th season because she wants to explore other TV and film options.

Deadline said she is already booked to host a Fremantle-produced reboot of the classic game show Supermarket Sweep.

Jones has not publicly commented on the news yet.
