SNL Season 42 Adds ‘BriTANicK,’ Jimmy Kimmel Writer to Staff
We still don’t have a host or musical guest for the rapidly-approaching SNL premiere, but the turnover of Season 42 continues. Following the addition of three new cast members, SNL has hired a grand total of seven new writers, including viral comedy duo BriTANicK, Jimmy Kimmel Live! alum, UCB vets and more.
Splitsider has the rundown of new Season 42 additions, which includes UCB alum Joanna Bradley, Anna Drezen and Kristen Bartlett, along with Kimmel’s Zack Bornstein, comedian Julio Torres, and BriTANicK stars Nick Kocher and Brian McElhaney. Unclear are which existing writers will return for Season 42, at least apart from new co-head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider.
Elsewhere of Season 42, new cast members Mikey Day, Alex Moffat and Melissa Villaseñor will replace Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky, while returning cast will include Vanessa Bayer, Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Colin Jost, Kate McKinnon, Kyle Mooney, Bobby Moynihan, Cecily Strong, Kenan Thompson, Sasheer Zamata, Michael Che, Pete Davidson and Leslie Jones.
We’ll likely know our first few hosts before long, but how does SNL Season 42 seem to be shaping up so far?
