New Saturday Night Live airing tomorrow

The creators of “Saturday Night Live” have announced that the sketch show will return with fresh material this weekend, Deadline reports, despite social distancing orders due to the coronavirus pandemic. Exactly how producer Lorne Michaels, the show’s 17 cast members and dozens of crew members plan to pull this off has yet to be revealed.

They have confirmed the new episode will indeed be broadcast from remote locations, including “Weekend Update,” hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che. Che, 36, recently announced the loss of his grandmother, who died from COVID-19 earlier this week.

According to Deadline, there had been discussions that the segment might return to air on it’s own, in the vein of Lorne Michaels’ other late night shows, such as “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” which have had success with their homegrown broadcasts.

“SNL” had been on a regularly scheduled break in their season when the coronavirus crisis hit hard, and was forced to cancel their March 28 return, which was to feature John Krasinski as host and musical guest Dua Lipa. It has not been confirmed whether either will be involved in this Saturday’s episode.

Krasinski, for his part, has kept himself busy with his makeshift YouTube news show, called “Some Good News.” His first installment in late March saw a mini-reunion of “The Office” when Steve Carell stopped by. Earlier this week, he also surprised one lucky Broadway fan with a special performance from the original cast of “Hamilton,” including Lin-Manuel Miranda.
