For those of you who are excited to see more of Kate McKinnon on Saturday Night Live, consider this to be great news!
According to a report from TVLine, the show’s longtime cast member (and one of its biggest stars) is looking to be back for season 46. Could she have departed for other opportunities? Sure, and we know that she is set to play Carole Baskin for an upcoming project that will start shooting next year. Yet, we think that in this current climate where so much is uncertain, it’s hard to say no to certainty. We also think McKinnon holds a lot of value on the show’s stage for her wide stable of impressions and ability to execute brilliant physical-comedy bits.

With McKinnon returning, all signs point to SNL retaining the entirety of their cast moving into the new season — isn’t that worth some excitement? It certainly makes things easier for the show, given that the last thing that we’re sure they want to do is have to audition a ton of new people for this season. (Someone new could still jump on board, but we haven’t heard anything just yet.)
At the moment, the plan still seems to be having the new season of Saturday Night Live premiere at some point in October. There are hopes that the series will be able to head back into the studio again for some sketches — it remains to be seen if that will be the case, but we’re excited about it for now.
