Rudolph's pregnancy comes in the wake of her NBC show, the Lorne Michaels-produced "Up All Night," going through a major shakeup after star Christina Applegate's departure on February 8.
"It's been a great experience working on 'Up All Night,' but the show has taken a different creative direction, and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors," Applegate said in a statement to US Weekly.
The creators of "Up All Night" had planned to switch from the single-camera look used by more high-brow productions like "30 Rock," to the more traditional multi-camera look seen in most sitcoms.
NBC was also allegedly hoping for a more raw behind-the-scenes feel, similar to SNL.
THR reports veteran television director James Burrows ("Cheers," "The Big Bang Theory") was being brought in to tape a one-episode reboot debuting the show's new look.
However, that episode has stalled, and star Will Arnett, who is being aggressively sought by CBS to star in a Greg Garcia-written comedy, allegedly wants off the show.
With Rudolph, who has starred in the films "Bridesmaids" and "Grown Ups" since leaving SNL in 2007, now pregnant again, the exit of "Up All Night" would make plenty of room for the dramatic entrance of her new not-ready-for-primetime player.
"Before I had children, everything about my life was devoted to 'Saturday Night Live,'" Rudolph told NPR'S "Fresh Air" in April. "It's really difficult to be there for anyone else in your life when you're doing the show because of the hours it demands."
