The Covid-19 pandemic made the last two seasons difficult for Saturday Night Live.

From being converted to "Saturday Night Live at Home", to returning to the studio with strict safety protocols, the production was far from simple.
This season, putting the show together was slightly easier.
One notable difference so far was that in the first promo for this season, Owen Wilson, Kacey Musgraves, and Kenan Thompson were not wearing face coverings, unlike in the previous season's promos.
Outside of Covid safety protocols, SNL's cast also looks a little different this season after long-time cast member Beck Bennett announced his departure along with Lauren Holt just before the season premiered.
Who will be hosting in the next few weeks?
The show is expected to have a season full of A-lister hosts and musical guests.
The next hosts will be:
December 11: Billie Eilish as host and musical guest.
December 18: Paul Rudd with musical guest Charli XCX.
This isn't Billie's first time performing, but will be her debut as the host, keeping up with the tradition of each previous host this season.
Paul Rudd will be joining the ever-coveted Five-Timers Club, after having appeared on the show in 2008, 2010, 2013, and 2019.
