With continued stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic, Saturday Night Live is set to air the second edition of its “At Home” specials this Saturday, April 25, according to Deadline. Following its April 11th remote special, NBC and the long-running sketch comedy series has embarked on the production of another episode. The first at-home special began with an altered introduction of its cast members performing domestic tasks and a surprise monologue from Tom Hanks, who recently recovered from his COVID-19 diagnosis.

The sketch show’s twitter released a short video, captioned “We’re back this Saturday #SNLAtHome,” that depicted the cast members reuniting for another Zoom call full of laughter. Saturday Night Live’s previous at-home special was originally meant to be an episode of Weekend Update before NBC announced that the special will be a 90-minute episode full of original content a few hours before airing. The original sketches are performed by its cast members over the popular conference call app, Zoom. This second edition of the remote sketch show aims to find humor during this confusing and difficult time as accomplished with its first special.
Currently, there is no announcement of any guest stars or a host. Yet, the first remote episode witnessed Hanks in addition to iconic cast members such as Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems), and Larry David (Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm) which suggests some familiar faces may make an appearance. Make sure to check out the new episode airing on NBC on Saturday, April 25 at 11:30 PM EST.
