Rewind: ’30 Rock’ to stay on the air after all?

Not a week has passed, and actor Alec Baldwin is already walking back his claim that “our show next year is our last year of the show.”

Baldwin, who co-stars with actress Tina Fey on the NBC sitcom, told the Vulture blog of New York Magazine on Monday, “Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She’s going to be the next Elaine May. She’ll be great.”

But on Thursday morning, Baldwin clarified his earlier remarks in a blogpost on the Huffington Post. Referring to his soon-to-be-expired contract, he noted that while he may leave network television, “30 Rock” has not yet reached its curtain call.

“Next year hopefully won’t be the last,” he wrote. “Here’s to five more seasons.”

Neither Fey nor NBC responded to New York Magazine’s requests for comment, although Fey did announce Wednesday on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” that she’s pregnant with her second child.
