Still not over Bill Hader's Saturday Night Live departure, and subsequent end of his character Stefon's occasional Weekend Update appearances? Don't worry—neither are we. So, here's just about the best news ever: In a new interview on Larry King's Hulu series, Hader revealed that the world very likely hasn't seen the last of Stefon, and that the character "probably will" come back to SNL or make appearances outside of the series in some form.
The only thing appropriate here is a Stefon freaking out GIF, so that's exactly what we're going to use:
The only bad news to come out of the interview was Hader's insistence that there will never be a Stefon movie and/or sitcom, despite how much the world desperately needs one. In his words: "Sometimes people say to me, 'I want a Stefon movie' and I’m like, you think you want a Stefon movie but then you’ll see the poster for it and think: 'Wait, I don’t want this.'" NOT TRUE, BILL HADER. Someone get a petition up to prove this joke wrong, stat.
Also, because he's a heartbreaker, Hader did reveal that a movie was considered, but the idea was axed a while back. "We did have an idea for a movie. We talked a little bit about an idea for a movie and then we were like, 'I don't think it will work,'" he explained. "We did have one funny scene which was making [SNL writer John Mulaney] and I laugh, which was Stefon coming out to his family, and his parents are blue collar people from the Bronx."
Broken dreams. Never thought it would hurt this much.
