Who can we expect to see on tonight’s new episode of NBC’s sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live? We have got all the info for you here.

Greetings, fellow fans of Saturday Night Live!

If you’re wondering if there’s going to be a new episode of SNL premiering tonight, I have some good and bad news to pass along. For tonight, it’s going to be part new, part clip show. That is, the first half hour will consist of new material, while the next hour will feature skits from shows past. Sounds confusing, but let’s break it down!

First, the all new David S. Pumpkins animated Halloween special will premiere at the regular time of 11:30 PM EST on NBC. Yes, it includes the voice of Tom Hanks reprising the role that he popularized last year during the Halloween season. The special is reminiscent of Scooby-Doo and other cartoons of its time, and looks to be a lot of fun. However, it’s only 30 minutes long.

To spend the remaining hour, SNL will be airing a best-of clip show of sorts of their funniest Halloween sketches. Over the years we certainly have many that we can choose from and there have been some great ones. So while we aren’t getting new sketches until next week, this still ought to be a very fun way to spend your final Saturday night before Halloween!

Next week, SNL returns with all new episodes on Nov. 4, 2017.  Be sure to tune back in and let’s see what the gang has in store for us next.
