On Thursday, NBC announced that Saturday Night Live will return on April 11 with an episode produced away from original Studio 8H in Rockfeller Center. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC foretold a Weekend Update segment along with new original content but it is unclear if the show will adopt a new schedule. Sketches and musical performances won’t take place and for now, the upcoming episode is a one-off.
Deep into its 45th season, the show broadcasted its latest episode on March 8 with host Daniel Craig and the Weeknd before production was postponed due to Coronavirus. March 28 episode set to feature John Krasinki and Due Lupa was cancelled and it is not known if these guests will reappear in future episodes.
