In perhaps what is the latest start date that we can remember, Saturday Night Live is coming back on October 2nd for its 47th season.
As of right now, there is still no word on who the host will be, nor which cast members will be returning. There’s been a lot of speculation, and even some that Lorne has begged many of the show’s biggest stars to hang in until the 50th anniversary in 2025. But so far nothing is official. As of right now, there’s still many contracts that haven’t even been signed and performers who are still in negotiations.
Hopefully all this will be settled within the next few weeks and we’ll have good news again soon.
