Another week of no new episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. When will the sketch series premiere its 45th season?

Season 44 of SNL has easily gone done as one of our favorites. We can’t wait to see what the next one has in store for us. But when exactly will Saturday Night Live return? Here’s what we know…

Unfortunately, a release date for Season 45 of SNL has not yet been released. We’re hoping to learn about an exact release date here soon, now that Saturday Night Live has been over for two weeks. However, if we look at previous dates, we can have a good guess at the premiere date for Season 45:

The sketch series returns to NBC during the fall, and Season 44 premiered in September. Taking a quick look at the calendar and NBC’s fall schedule return date, our best guess is that SNL Season 45 kicks off September 28, 2019.

More from NBC

I know what you’re thinking, summer hasn’t officially even arrived yet — how are we supposed to wait all the way until fall? No worries, it’ll be here before you know it! Plus, it’s not like there’s nothing else on television to keep us busy.

Who will return? Just like there’s no premiere date, we’re also not too sure who will be back, except for a few cast members:

Series favorite Kenan Thompson may have a new show on NBC, but he has shared that he has no plans to exit Saturday Night Live. It’s also a safe bet Kate McKinnon (another favorite) will be back. However, she does have a lot of projects up ahead, don’t be too shocked if she decides to step away.
