‘Saturday Night Live’ fall line-up announced as show welcomes new cast



“Saturday Night Live” has officially booked its first three weeks of hosts and musical guests.

Miles Teller will host the Season 48 premiere on Oct. 1 with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.

On Oct. 8, Brendan Gleeson will host and Willow Smith will provide the tunes.

Megan Thee Stallion will take on double duties as host and musical guest on Oct. 15.

“See you next week!” the show’s official Twitter account tweeted with the list of upcoming performers.

The show will look drastically different from previous seasons as longtime cast members Pete Davidson, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Kyle Mooney, Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseñor, and Aristotle Athari have all left the late-night show.

Chris Redd — who portrayed everyone from New York City Mayor Eric Adams to Jay-Z and Barack Obama during his five-year run on the show — also announced that Monday he will not be returning.

However, newcomers Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow, and Devon Walker have joined the cast.

Kearney — who uses they/them pronouns — is the first non-binary cast member in the show’s history.

Season 48 of “SNL” starts Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
