‘Saturday Night Live’ Goes Dark in Writers Strike – Variety

You’ll have to wait a while for the next original “Live, from New York!”

“Saturday Night Live” will not produce any new episodes for the upcoming period, due to the writers’ strike called by the WGA. According to NBC, the next scheduled episode of the show, scheduled for Saturday night and hosted by former cast member Pete Davidson with musical guest Lil Uzi Vert, will not air. With such a hiatus, it’s very likely that fans won’t have any new episodes of “SNL” in its 48th season. The show usually continues in its summer period after the month of May.

“SNL will air until further notice, starting Saturday, May 6,” NBC said.

The season relied heavily on cast members such as Ego Nwodim, who introduced a new breakout character, Lisa from Temecula; Chloe Fineman, whose impressions have expanded her profile; Heidi Gardner, who often creates new voices for each character she plays; and Buen Yang, whose offbeat but feisty Weekend Update characters make people laugh.
