Saturday Night Live is coming back!

The NBC late-night staple announced that its 49th season will premiere Oct. 14 with Pete Davidson hosting and Ice Spice as the musical guest. Former SNL castmember Davidson was supposed to host the show on May 6, alongside musical guest Lil Uzi Vert, before the writers’ strike canceled all upcoming episodes when it started on May 2. The premiere will mark Ice Spice’s debut on the show.


The following week, on Oct. 21, Bad Bunny will pull double duty as host and musical guest. Bad Bunny made his first appearance on SNL in April 2020 with a cameo during a pandemic-era Saturday Night Live At Home episode. He made his debut as a musical guest in February 2021 (and acted in a couple of sketches) alongside Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page as the host. The Oct. 21 episode will mark Bad Bunny’s first time hosting.

The show also announced that the entire season 48 cast will return this year alongside one new featured player, Chloe Troast.

This past weekend, SNL capitalized on the interest around the relationship between Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce and pop superstar Taylor Swift by rerunning the Kelce-hosted episode from March.

Saturday Night Live‘s final episode last season was took place on April 15, with host Ana de Armas and musical guest Karol G. The show was set to return for a May 6 episode before the writers’ strike began.
