The sketch show took to Twitter to make the exciting announcement, posting:
We don't really blame NBC for going after some huge names to kick off season 42, since the absence of Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah, and Jon Rudnitsky is sure to leave a pretty big void.
However, it will be interesting to see newbies Melissa Villaseñor, Mikey Day, and Alex Moffat in action!
The premiere of SNL's 42nd season will air on Saturday, October 1. Will U be watching?!
