Saturday Night Live: Chris Rock to Host October 3 Premiere — SNL – TVLine

Chris Rock is rolling into Studio 8H for Saturday Night Live‘s season opener.

The SNL vet is set to host the late-night sketch series’ Season 46 premiere on Oct. 3, live from 30 Rock with a limited, in-person audience. He will be joined by musical guest Megan Thee Stallion.

Rock was an SNL cast member from 1990-1993. He previously returned to host in 1996 and 2014. His third go-round will coincide with Jim Carrey’s debut as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The episode airs just four days after the first primetime debate between the former vice president and incumbent POTUS Donald Trump.

Rock is currently making the rounds to promote the fourth season of FX’s Fargo (premiering Sunday, Sept. 27). Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion recently released her latest album “Suga,” which spawned the hit single “Savage.”

As previously reported, SNL will welcome back its entire ensemble — including Kate McKinnon —  for Season 46. The show has also added three new featured players: improv vets Lauren Holt, Punkie Johnson and Andrew Dismukes — the latter of whom has been an SNL staff writer since Season 43.

Are you looking forward to Rock’s SNL return?

‘Saturday Night Live’ To Return To Studio 8H In October – Deadline

Saturday Night Live will be back in the studio for its 46th season next month.

The venerable NBC sketch comedy series will return on October 3 and will air live from Studio 8H in 30 Rock.

This comes nearly seven months since the show’s last in-studio appearance on March 7, hosted by Daniel Craig. The show pivoted to three at-home performances during the spring.

The show has generally premiered around the end of September or the start of October, meaning that season 46 will not be delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The network didn’t give too much detail about the show’s return and whether there would be any audience, guest hosts or musical performances from the studio. One thing that could probably be expected is Maya Rudolph, in some form, playing Kamala Harris, while Jason Sudeikis recently teased that he’d be up for playing Joe Biden again.

SNL joins The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers in returning to 30 Rock at Rockefeller Center. Fallon has been back in the building for a number of weeks, while Meyers returned earlier this week.

However, unlike those shows, which are based around one host, SNL has a large cast. Featured player Ego Nwodim was upped to a repertory player for this upcoming season and she is part of a cast that in 2019/20 included Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Michael Che, Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Chloe Fineman, Heidi Gardner, Colin Jost, Kate McKinnon, Alex Moffat, Kyle Mooney, Chris Redd, Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, Melissa Villaseñor and Bowen Yang.

Many of the cast members have spent the last few months saying how they miss the studio. Kenan Thompson, the show’s longest-running cast member with 17 seasons under his belt, recently talked up missing the studio, while Colin Jost said that the pandemic made him appreciate more than ever the routine of working at the studio.

“I’ve been talking to [Michael] Che about it in general,” Jost told Howard Stern. “The COVID stuff has really affected how I feel about it because, you know, being away from people who make you laugh at work in that way for this long, really makes you appreciative of not only the job, but of the routine of being at work.”

Kyle Mooney also recent said that he misses being around other SNL cast members and said that the upcoming season would see the cast “try to do as close to the real thing” as possible.

Saturday Night Live is produced by Broadway Video in association with SNL Studios with Lorne Michaels as executive producer.
