Saturday Night Live has officially booked its first three weeks with hosts and musical guests.
Miles Teller will host the October 1st season 48 premiere with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
On October 8th, Brendan Gleeson will host and Willow Smith will provide the tunes.
Megan Thee Stallion will take on the dual roles of presenter and musical guest on October 15.
“See you next week!” the show’s official Twitter account tweeted with the list of upcoming artists.
The show will be 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 stint on the show – also announced he won’t be returning on Monday.
However, newcomers Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow and Devon Walker have joined the cast.
Kearney – who uses she/she pronouns – is the first non-binary cast member in the series’ history.
Season 48 of “SNL” begins October 1 at 11:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
