SNL hasn’t produced new episodes since the Daniel Craig-hosted March 7 episode because of the spread of the coronavirus. However, on Saturday, April 11, the long-running series will return with original content featuring material produced remotely by Saturday Night Live cast members who are practicing social distancing. “Weekend Update” will be part of the new episode.
Saturday Night Live originally had new episodes planned for March 28, April 4 and April 11. John Krasinski was set to host the March 28 episode with musical guest Dua Lipa. Production is now on hold indefinitely after previously being suspended on March 16.
A number of other late-night and talk shows have resumed production with hosts anchoring from home. The Tonight Show, Late Night, Late Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and The View are among the shows now remotely producing new episodes remotely.
