Live from quarantine — it’s Saturday Night Live!
NBC’s long-running late-night sketch comedy series will return this weekend with its first new episode since March 7th. SNL was previously forced to shut down production due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The upcoming April 11th episode will be filmed remotely and include a “Weekend Update” segment as well as other original content from SNL cast members, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hopefully that means more Kyle Mooney.
Update: Tom Hanks is hosting the episode and Coldplay’s Chris Martin is serving as the musical guest.
The episode is considered a one-off, though more remote episodes could be required depending on how long New York City is under quarantine.
