After tonight’s big show on NBC, why not talk about when the new season of Saturday Night Live will start? When will the late-night show come back on the air? The first thing we need to say should be pretty clear: SNL will be back on NBC in the fall for another season.
This show has been around for a long time, and it is also one of the most reliable ones in terms of ratings. It will always get viewers as long as it has an interesting host, so there’s no reason to cancel it soon.
Do we know that Season 48 is likely to look very different? Absolutely. When cast members like Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, and Kyle Mooney leave, this is what happens.
Lately, there has been a lot of stability in the cast, so it makes sense that the show would go through a bigger change this year. At some point, it was bound to happen, but Lorne Michaels and his team were the ones who found some of these people in the first place!
There are still good cast members like Heidi Gardner and Bowen Yang, and we’re sure they’ll find more and promote some of the ones they already have. Now, if you want to know when season 48 will probably start, mark late September or early October on your calendar.
Most of the time, NBC doesn’t change much from their usual fall premiere dates, and it’s likely that they won’t be here either.
We think that the person who hosts the premiere will be someone who has a big summer, either because they are in a hit movie or because they are in the news for some other reason.
This always helps get people excited about the return of a show, especially one with so many possible new cast members. When things change, you need to be excited!
Who Is Leaving After This Season of Saturday Night Live?
In Studio 8H at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where Saturday Night Live is taped, a lot of very talented comedians have been part of the show’s cast over the course of its 47 seasons.
Some people only stay for one or two seasons, but others have been on the show for a long time before moving on to other things.
No matter how long a cast member has been on the show, it’s never easy to say goodbye to them when they finally decide to leave.
Last season, only one cast member left Saturday Night Live. But this year is a little different because several long-time cast members are about to leave the show. Here are the people who won’t be back for season 48 of SNL.
Who Will No Longer Be on Saturday Night Live? (2022)
This year, four important cast members are leaving Saturday Night Live. After the show’s 47th season, several veteran cast members will also leave.
This year, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson, and Kyle Mooney are all leaving the show. The four cast members’ departures were confirmed before the start of season 47, which was also their last episode.
The Cast of Season 48 of Snl
Even though the official SNL season 48 cast won’t be known until closer to the season’s start, all of the following cast members are expected to be back: Colin Jost, Chris Redd, Kenan Thompson, Andrew Dismukes, Chloe Fineman, Ego Nwodim, Alex Moffat, Mikey Day.
Heidi Gardner, Bowen Yang, Michael Che, Sarah Sherman, Cecily Strong, James Austin Johnson, Melissa Villaseor, and Punkie Johnson.
There is a chance that a few cast members will leave, but no other exits have been announced at this time, which suggests that the rest of the cast will be back.
It’s also likely that the show will add one or two new characters, but we probably won’t know who they are until closer to the season 48 premiere this fall.

How to See Saturday Night Live?
Saturday Night Live has always been on NBC on Saturday nights at 11:30 pm, which is a bit of a surprise. For many years, the show aired at 11:30 p.m. in every U.S. time zone. In 2017, the show decided to start airing live in every time zone.
This meant that people on the west coast could watch it at 8:30 p.m. ET. SNL is always on your local NBC station, no matter what time you want to watch it. NBC is available on almost every way to watch live TV, including cable, services like YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, Fubo TV, Sling TV, and even an antenna.
On Sunday, the most recent episodes of the show will be available to stream on Hulu and Peacock, NBCUniversal’s own streaming service. There are also 46 seasons of Peacock that you can stream. The day after SNL airs, clips from the most recent show also end up on YouTube.
