See every ‘SNL’ season 48 host and musical guest

Here’s everyone SNL has announced so far.

Saturday Night Live – Season 42

The lights are back on in Studio 8H.

Saturday Night Live returns this week to kick off season 48 of the Emmy-winning NBC sketch show, and some things are bound to look a little different. At the end of last season, SNL said goodbye to longtime cast members Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, and Kyle Mooney, and over the summer the show announced that Melissa Villaseñor, Alex Moffat, Aristotle Athari, and Chris Redd also would not return. To fill some gaps, season 48 will welcome four new featured players: Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow, and Devon Walker.

Having a hard time dealing with all that change? Don’t worry, SNL mainstay Kenan Thompson will be there to guide us through his record 20th season on the cast. Another thing that appears to be staying the same for now is last season’s trend of welcoming a ton of first-timers, with every season 48 host announced so far making their debut as show emcee.

Read on to see who is hosting each new episode and who they’ll be introducing as musical guest.
