LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jerrod Carmichael says he's leaving "The Carmichael Show," effectively ending it after three seasons.

The comedian announced his departure from the sitcom Friday. NBC is still airing episodes from the third season.

Representatives for the network did not respond to a request for comment Friday.

The 30-year-old co-creator and star wrote in a statement that he got to make a show that he loves with his friends, which is something he'd wanted to do since he was 13. He says he is now looking forward to other opportunities. He announced last year that he is writing a book that will be published by Random House.
