With the writers strike settled, Saturday Night Live can get back to writing sketches and putting on new episodes. SNL returns October 14 with former castmember Pete Davidson as host and Ice Spice as musical guest. Then on 10/21, Bad Bunny will pull double duty as host and musical guest.
If you’re wondering about how the still-on SAG-AFTRA strike works with a show like SNL, here’s the official word from the union: “SAG-AFTRA members appearing on Saturday Night Live either as hosts, guests, or cast members are working under the Network Code agreement, which is not a contract we are striking. They are not in violation of SAG-AFTRA strike rules, and we support them in fulfilling their contractual obligations.”
