This season will mark the first time the sketch show has been hosted by a female host, and its producers have been particularly proud of its new female performers.
“This is a truly exciting time for our cast, and we are thrilled to welcome Sarah Paul, Davey Wren, and John Mulane back to the SNL family,” said Tina Fey.
“The cast is growing and growing, and there’s no better place to see it than on Saturday.”
