Alec Baldwin: 30 Rock ends in 2012

Alec Baldwin has claimed hit TV series 30 Rock is coming to an end next year.

The Golden Globe award-winning actor - who has played Jack Donaghy in Tina Fey's NBC sitcom since 2006 - has made no secret of his plans to leave the show in 2012, but he's now told the New York Times the whole show will finish in 2012.

Alec said: "I will tell you one thing, and that is our show next year is our last year of the show."

He added: "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."

Tina Fey's reps declined to comment.

The Saturday Night Live comedienne writes and stars in the hit show as TV producer Liz Lemon and has gone on to star in several films including Date Night with Steve Carell.

Tina made her film debut as the writer of hit comedy Mean Girls, in which she played Lindsay Lohan's teacher.

30 Rock has seen Liz's quest for love and happiness with suitors including those played by John Hamm and Matt Damon, as well featuring a huge number of other guest stars.

The show has been commissioned for a sixth series, due to air over the 2011-2012 US TV season.
