The excitement doesn’t stop there. On October 21, SNL enthusiasts can look forward to a double treat. Bad Bunny, the acclaimed rapper/singer, will not only grace the stage as the musical guest but also take on the role of host. This marks his second performance on the iconic SNL stage, following his memorable appearance in 2021. SNL has welcomed comedian Chloe Troast into its cast, adding more talent to the show’s roster.
The previous season faced an unexpected halt, shortened by three episodes due to the Writers’ Guild of America (WGA) strike in Hollywood. Despite the challenges, the SNL team is back, ready to deliver laughter and entertainment to viewers worldwide.

Notably, Pete Davidson had some playful banter earlier this year, joking about the possibility of SNL being canceled. Regardless, he expressed his excitement, stating, “They didn’t want me to [host] – it’s all about me! But if it happens, I’m super excited.” SNL fans can rest assured that the show is not only happening but is returning with a bang, promising unforgettable moments and top-notch comedy.
