SNL: When is it back and how can you watch the new season?

Saturday Night Live will soon be returning to TV screens for its 47th season.

The long-running comedy sketch show will be beamed across America from New York once again, starting on 2 October.

Airing in its usual slot of 11.30pm EST on NBC, viewers will be able to see familiar faces such as Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson and Colin Jost. As the title suggests, SNL will be live on both coasts of America with the west coast able to tune in from 8.30pm PST

The first four guest hosts have also been announced for the season with an eclectic group of names such as Kim Kardashian, Jason Sudeikis and Owen Wilson all set to front episodes, as well as Oscar winner Rami Malek.

Musical guests have also been announced with the first episode featuring Kacey Musgraves. Following episodes will feature Young Thug, Halsey and Brandi Carlile.

As well as being broadcast live on NBC, viewers will also be able to watch SNL through the Peacock app. The first four episodes of the upcoming season will be livestreamed through the app and every past season is also available to view as well.

There will also be a live audience for the 47th season after Covid prevented fans from being in attendance last time around.
