Earlier reports suggesting that Bill Murray would be hosting this year’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live and that Chris Pratt and Sarah Silverman would host the next two episodes were wrong. Bill Murray will not be hosting the season premiere. Chris Pratt, along with musical guest Ariana Grande, will be hosting the premiere. Sarah Silverman — who was actually one of those forgotten cast members (Class of 93-94) will host the second episode of the season.
It’s been 15 years since Murray hosted SNL, and we may just have to wait a little longer.
Earlier this week, SNL also hired the fourth member of the Good Neighbor comedy gang, Nick Rutherford, who will join Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, plus director Dave McCary, who were hired last season.
