Update, Saturday, April 17: Will there be a new episode of Night Live tonight, April 17? There won’t be a new SNL tonight; instead, NBC will re-air host Regina King‘s episode from earlier this season at 11:30 p.m. ET. Check back in the future when we’ll have news on when you can expect another episode.
Previously: Will there be a new episode of Saturday Night Live on Saturday, April 10? The most recent episode of the hit NBC comedy series aired last week when host Carey Mulligan led a new hour of SNL alongside musical guest Kid Cudi.
Mulligan’s hosting duties followed that of Daniel Kaluuya‘s the week prior, and the Promising Young Woman actress kicked things off memorably in her opening monologue with real-life husband Marcus Mumford of the band Mumford & Sons making an appearance in the audience to pitch himself as a potential musical guest for the episode. Additionally, Mulligan fun at the “lesbian period drama” subgenre with films like Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Ammonite in a new sketch starring cast members Heidi Gardner and Kate McKinnon.
The last show before SNL went on a month-long hiatus was hosted by Nick Jonas. Among the highlights of Jonas’s February 27 episode was a sketch about a case of mistaken identity involving Prince Charming and Cinderella’s glass slipper, an appearance from Jonas’s brother, Kevin Jonas, and an incredible sketch about who love Netflix murder shows. And, as if Jonas running around the SNL stage performing in multiple sketches wasn’t enough, he was also the February 27 musical guest, too.
Jonas’s hosting gig capped off a rather terrific February for SNL. Before Jonas, SNL was by Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page. Page showed off his comedy chops with a Bridgerton sketch, a saucy opening monologue, and a sketch dedicated to the transformative power of the British accent. Page’s hosting gig was one of the best episodes thus far in Season 46, with episodes hosted by Regina King and Schitt’s Creek alum Dan Levy coming in close behind.
Saturday Night Live airs on Saturdays at 11:30 pm ET/8:30 pm PT. All previous episodes of Saturday Night Live Season 46 are available to stream on Peacock and Hulu.
