Will the hit sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live return to NBC tonight with an all new episode, or will it be a repeat? We have the info right here.

Might Saturday Night Live be live from New York tonight, or is NBC going to air a rerun?

You’ve come to the right place, so let’s get right to your question. Here’s the good news for you: YESSNL is returning tonight after a hiatus taken in April. Tonight at the usual time, the show will be airing an all new episode for fans to check out.

Tonight, it’s going to be an interesting show as the celebrity guest host is also the musical guest. The talented actor Donald Glover will be serving as the host of the festivities. His hip hop alter ego Childish Gambino is also going to be the musical guest, so big fans of Glover are going to particularly enjoy tonight’s show.

However, it should be noted that this is one of three episodes left for this season. But NBC does have some good things in store for us. Next week on May 12, Amy Schumer will host with musical guest Kacey Musgraves. Finally, Tina Fey will be hosting with Nicki Minaj for the season finale on May 19.

Next: Jimmy Kimmel will play Batman in Teen Titans Go!

With just a few remaining episodes left this season, it’s likely those behind the scenes are pulling out all the stops. We’re expecting these all to be fantastic episodes. Watch for yourself to see when Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
