Saturday Night Live is set to return for an unprecedented 46th season beginning October 3rd. The cast will be back in studio for the upcoming season, rather than filming remotely from their homes.
Lorne Michaels and Co. announced some plans for the new season in a release, with the biggest news being that Jim Carrey will portray United States presidential hopeful Joe Biden to open the season. Unfortunately, that means Jason Sudeikis will not reprise his role as Biden, but both Alec Baldwin and Maya Rudolph will return to play Donald Trump and Kamala Harris, respectively.
