The legendary sketch comedy series will kick off its 38th season on September 15 with a host and musical guest to be named in the coming weeks.
SNL's full cast has yet to be announced, but Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott have previously confirmed that they will not be returning for the fall season.
Jason Sudeikis has said that he is willing to return if he is given more creative control, but stressed that simply playing presidential candidate Mitt Romney "is not enough".
Veteran impressionist Bill Hader has indicated in various media interviews that he will be back for an eighth season. Seth Meyers has also confirmed he will return.
Saturday Night Live debuted on NBC on October 11, 1975 with host George Carlin and musical acts Billy Preston and Janis Ian.
