Fans of the long-running sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live, will be relieved to hear that it is returning live this Fall. 

NBC announced Thursday the show will hold its 46th season back in-studio. Notoriously airing ‘live from New York’, the last in-studio show aired on March 7th, just before Covid took over the industry. The show was then forced to move remote for the final three episodes of last season.

The remote show included many self-shot pieces from cast members and was overall, well received. Releasing content such as the “Lockdown Song,” “Zoom Church,” and a series of other timely pieces revolving around the social distancing lifestyle. 

While the show remained successful through its home broadcasts, viewers have been eager to hear if the show would return to the studio. Although we do not yet know if there will be a live audience, guest hosts, or live musical guests, we do know the cast will be performing in the studio. 

The first show of this season is set to air live on October 3rd at 11:30pm. This date is especially important since it is exactly one month before the 2020 Presidential election. SNL has notoriously loved political comedy and I’m sure longtime fans of the show are looking forward to seeing what they have cooking for this year.
