Weekend Update is officially going to the Emmys. NBC confirms that SNL writers and stars Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 2018 ceremony later this year, while creator Lorne Michaels is getting back involved as well.
This coming weekend will see Sam Rockwell taking the SNL stage for the first time, but January 2018 has yet more celebs in store. Season 43 will continue the year with fellow first-timer Jessica Chastain, along with SNL vet Will Ferrell.
SNL may be in for some changes at the Weekend Update desk, but it’s not what you think – yet. Anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will be doubling up on their responsibilities as two of SNL’s new head writers.
