For weeks, fans have gone without their beloved NBC sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live—but the winter hiatus won’t last much longer. Season 44 of SNL won’t return this Saturday, but in one more week on Saturday, January 19.
While the guest list for the remainder of the season has yet to be revealed, the network has at least detailed the first set of celebrities to appear on the mid-season opener. Rachel Brosnahan, star of Amazon Prime Video original series Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, is set to host SNL for the very first time when the show returns.
Viewers will have to wait until the show premieres to see what Brosnahan has up her sleeve for her SNL debut hosting gig, but the odds of a Mrs. Maisel sketch seem high considering the many time’s Cecily Strong has delivered her killer impression of Brosnahan’s Midge on the show.
In the meantime though, fans can catch an epic rerun of SNL. An all-star episode of the show featuring sketches from SNL alums like Eddie Murphy, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Dana Carvey, Al Franken, Mike Meyers and several others is slated to air during SNL’s usual time on Saturday.
Find out everything to know about Brosnahan’s SNL appearance below.
Who’s performing: Rock band Greta Van Fleet will perform on SNL for the first time. The Michigan-born brother Josh, Jake and Sam Kiszka and their pal Danny Wagner, will likely jam out to songs from their debut album From the Fires. The album along with their chart-topping hit, “Highway Tune,” landed the group some major Grammy attention, including 2019 nominations for Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
When: Brosnahan and Greta Van Fleet will appear on SNL’s mid-season opener on Saturday, January 19 during SNL’s usual timeslot at 11:30 p.m. ET.
Where: SNL airs on the NBC network.
Can it be live streamed: The mid-season return will be available for live streaming on NBC’s website and app. Viewers with access to Hulu’s Live TV subscription can catch the live stream there, while standard Hulu subscribers will have to wait until after the episode airs to view on-demand. Per usual, highlights and the best clips of the episode will be uploaded to SNL’s YouTube shortly after the show.
