Not only will “SNL” return to the studio, but so will the entire cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month, season 46 marks the first time ever that the season will begin with the previous season’s entire cast returning; the sketch show is not adding nor losing any members of the cast.

Beck Bennett, Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Michael Che, Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Heidi Gardner, Colin Jost, Alex Moffatt, Kyle Mooney, Chris Redd, Cecily Strong and Melissa Villaseñor are all slated to return, as are featured players Chloe Fineman, Ego Nwodim and Bowen Yang.

The show’s last live in-studio edition aired on March 7, hosted by Daniel Craig.

During the coronavirus pandemic lockdown “SNL” aired three shows, made entirely by the cast and crew from the safety of their homes.
