Between letting go of three cast members and adding new head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, Saturday Night Live has made a couple big changes leading up to the season 42 premiere this fall. In case you’re worried that more cast members might depart before the new season, worry no more, because today the show confirmed with us that the rest of season 41’s cast will return next season:
Vanessa Bayer Beck Bennett Aidy Bryant Colin Jost Kate McKinnon Kyle Mooney Bobby Moynihan Cecily Strong Kenan Thompson Sasheer Zamata Michael Che Pete Davidson Leslie Jones
Lorne Michaels revealed in June that Jost and Che will return as Weekend Update anchors. SNL hasn’t yet announced the premiere date for season 42 or if there are any new performers joining the cast.
