Still unclear is which cast members will be returning for the forthcoming season. Specifically, all eyes seem to be on long standing cast members like Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, and Pete Davidson, all of whom have sparked exit rumors over the course of the past year as they pursue more and more opportunities outside of SNL.
Also yet to be announced is the new season’s first round of hosts and musical guests, though more information on that is expected to come within the next few weeks.
