The season premiere of any show sets the tone for the season ahead, and that sentiment is especially true for our beloved Saturday Night Live. The SNL show runners at NBC take their hosting and performing lineups very seriously, carefully picking artists, actors, and celebrities who are relevant, relatable and funny!
Past season premiere hosts have included Steve Carrell, LeBron James, Miley Cyrus, and Ryan Gosling with musical guests like Jay-Z, Ariana Grande, and The Weeknd.
A few months before the season starts, SNL will tweet out asking who we want to see perform and host, and we can probably figure out when they asked over the summer based on the musical guest scheduled for the premiere next week.
Season 44 of Saturday Night Live premieres on Saturday September 29th at 11:29pm with Adam Driver hosting and Kanye West as the musical guest.
