On May 13, Kieran Culkin was slated for hosting Saturday Night Live for another time, while Jennifer Coolidge was slated to host the season finale on May 20. The Writers Guild of America trade strike, which is still going on, means that Saturday Night Live fans are going to have to wait a little further for the premiere of the latest episodes.

Kieran Culkin’s Comeback

The NBC show will not be producing any more new episodes during the current season, despite Kieran Culkin’s scheduled comeback to Studio 8H on 13th May as well as Jennifer Coolidge’s scheduled appearance on 20 May. Both Coolidge and Culkin were making their hosting debuts on SNL.

This Saturday’s show, where Pete Davidson, the comedian, was supposed to make his role as host appearance with musical artist Lil Uzi Vert, has been canceled, according to NBC, which made the announcement on Tuesday. Due to a writers’ strike, SNL has been canceled; repeats will continue to air.

Long-time crew veteran Kenan Thompson previewed what viewers would have witnessed during the live show prior to Davidson’s anticipated comeback. The week of Davidson’s concert is enjoyable and simple for Thompson and his group.

Thompson continued by saying that the episode would “try to balance” both the new skits and the characters that Davidson has previously played on the show.  The Good Burger performer also added that he is a lover of the classics. It’s nice to discover the new, but he would load the show with every single old role or anything.

Regarding the writers’ strike, various productions are being impacted by the protest over a disagreement between AMPTP and  WGA labor organization. While on sabbatical, late-night programs are running repeats. Despite the strike, production of scripted television continues.
