Saturday Night Live will enter a transition season in 2022-23.
When the NBC evening show begins its 48th season on October 1, it will be without longtime cast members Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon and Kyle Mooney, all of whom left the show at the end of season 47. Regulars Alex Moffat and Melissa Villaseñor and lead actor Aristotle Athari also departed over the summer, and Chris Redd announced his departure from the show in mid-September.
Four featured players (Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow and Devon Walker) have joined the show for 2022-23.
Season 48 opens with three consecutive weeks of shows starting October 1. Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller will host the season premiere with musical guest Kendrick Lamar. The following week will have both a first host in Brendan Gleeson and a musical guest in Willow. Megan Thee Stallion will be hosting both the host and musical guest on October 15.
