Get ready to see a bit less of Kristen Wiig.

In a recent interview with TIME magazine, the ubiquitous ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member revealed that she is retiring two of her frequent – and arguably polarizing – characters, Gilly and Penelope.

Wiig didn’t elaborate on her decision to retire the characters, though she insists they will not return, not even at Lorne Michaels’ request.

Wiig, who stars in next week’s all-girls comedy ‘Bridesmaids,’ has been in the headlines a lot lately. In a NY Times profile last week, Michaels referred to her as one of the “top three or four” performers in ‘Saturday Night Live’ history.

Sound off: Will you miss Gilly and Penelope? Or is it time for them to go?
