Yes, Andy Samberg has left "Saturday Night Live" joining Kristen Wiig in waving goodbye to the iconic sketch comedy show, which should make for a radically different program when it returns in September. And while we'll miss the SNL Digital Shorts (though, we guess he'll team up with this Lonely Island boys to do some special ones from time to time) it looks like Samberg is ready to spread his wings a bit. He already hit Sundance in January with "Celeste And Jesse Forever," a relationship dramedy that's a bit different than we're used to seeing from him and now he's crossing the pond for his next television effort.

Yes, Andy Samberg has left "Saturday Night Live" joining Kristen Wiig in waving goodbye to the iconic sketch comedy show, which should make for a radically different program when it returns in September. And while we'll miss the SNL Digital Shorts (though, we guess he'll team up with this Lonely Island boys to do some special ones from time to time) it looks like Samberg is ready to spread his wings a bit. He already hit Sundance in January with "Celeste And Jesse Forever," a relationship dramedy that's a bit different than we're used to seeing from him and now he's crossing the pond for his next television effort.

Samberg is starring with Welsh comedian Greg Davies in "Cuckoo," a six-part comedy series for BBC Three. Created and written by Robin French and Kieron Quirke, the show follows parents Ken (Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale), who have to deal with their daughter's (Tamla Kari) new husband Cuckoo (Samberg), a "squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja who is now their son-in-law." He will apparently be filled with "outlandish, New Age ideas" too. It actually sounds like a good fit for Samberg who thrives best comedy-wise the more absurd it gets.

Filming on "Cuckoo" will take place this summer, with the show to air later this year, but no word yet on when it will cross the pond. Until then, you can see Samberg this weekend with Adam Sandler in "That's My Boy." Here are six clips from the movie to get you ready. [THR/Collider]
