The new season of Saturday Night Live is bringing many major changes our way, but one thing will stay the same—amazing hosts! Miles Teller, Brendan Gleeson, and Megan Thee Stallion will kick off the new season in style, as hosts of the first three episodes.

Miles Teller will make his hosting debut in a season opener on October 1 alongside musical guest Kendrick Lamar. He most recently starred in the Paramount+ series The Offer and one of the biggest blockbusters of the year—Top Gun: Maverick.

Brendan Gleeson, who is currently getting Oscar buzz for his role in The Banshees of Inisherin, will make his hosting debut alongside Willow. As for Megan Thee Stallion, the Grammy-winning rapper will pull double duty on October 15, serving as both the host and the musical guest.

Season 48 of SNL is set to premiere on October 1, and it’s bringing many changes our way. Executive producer Lorne Michaels described it as a “transition year” for the cult sketch comedy show since many beloved cast members recently departed the show.

Most notably, Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and Kyle Mooney announced their exit following the Season 47 finale. They were later joined by several more cast members, including Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseñor, Aristotle Athari, and Chris Redd.
