Following the conclusion of the Hollywood writers’ strike, Saturday Night Live is finally returning to NBC this weekend (Oct. 14) with former cast member Pete Davidson taking on the role of host.

In a new promo for the episode posted on Wednesday (Oct. 11), Chloe Fineman and Bowen Yang discuss what they did over the summer, before Davidson shows up on the SNL set wearing loungewear and eating potato chips.

“Pete, what are you doing here?” Yang asks, before the Staten Island native replies, “My apartment is under construction, so I’m just living here.”

When told that only cast or hosts are allowed in the SNL studio, the comedian agrees and simply replies that he’ll host.

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 season 49 premiere on Saturday (Oct. 14) will feature Ice Spice as the musical guest instead, marking the “Princess Diana” rapper’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.
