Saturday Night Live Plot
Saturday Night Live Season 48 Cast
Prior to the beginning of the 2022-2023 cycle, eight members from the Saturday Night Live cast bid goodbye to the show, including Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Kyle Mooney, and last but not least, Aidy Bryant. The departure of these artists was announced at the time of the conclusion of the previous season, i.e., Season 47.
Early in September this year, only a handful of weeks before the Season 48 premiere, fans were met with news of more departures with Chris Redd, Alex Moffat, Aristotle Athari, and Melissa Villaseñor exiting the show.
Furthermore, returning cast member Cecily Strong had to take a tentative leave of absence in the early part of the new season owing to her prior commitments to perform in the Los Angeles revival of The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, which is a one-woman stage play.
In Season 47, Saturday Night Live had expanded to include a historically large cast of twenty-one artists, but with the above-mentioned changes, the show has been restored to a manageable size as of Season 48. As such, Lorne Michaels, who serves as the executive producer, on September 12, 2022, claimed that this season could be called a “transition year.”
And rightfully so, with four brand new artists joining the SNL cast, including Molly Kearney, Marcello Hernandez, Devon Walker, and Michael Longfellow. Moreover, Molly Kearney is all set to make history as the first non-binary cast member of the comedy show.
Sarah Sherman will continue as a featured player in Season 48 of Saturday Night Live alongside James Austin Johnson, while Punkie Johnson and Andrew Dismukes, who were initially recruited in Season 46 as featured players, have been promoted to the status of repertory for the new season of SNL.
