If there is one thing Saturday Night Live fans have come to expect, it’s an unpredictability to the show’s schedule.

After capping off 2020 with an episode hosted by alum Kristen Wiig, SNL has been taking an unexpectedly longer break than anticipated as we’re now three weeks into January and have yet to be treated to a new episode of NBC’s late-night favorite.

Unfortunately, the wait for a new episode of SNL will continue for at least one more week as NBC is set to air yet another encore episode this evening; however, the good news is that season 46 will finally resume next weekend with host John Krasinski and musical guest Machine Gun Kelly.

Given Krasinski’s history with comedy, the episode is sure to delight and make the excruciating wait worth it. Until then, fans can enjoy an encore SNL this weekend which should more than help to tie them over. So just what does NBC have in store for viewers this Saturday night?

Interestingly, rather than airing an older episode, NBC has decided to re-air a more recent episode this weekend in bringing fans an encore of Timothée Chalamet’s Dec. 12 episode which featured Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as musical guests.

While it’s only been a few weeks since we watched the episode live, the episode was full of several fun sketches as Chalamet truly shined in his SNL debut. Sure, there were a few failed sketches, but as a whole, the episode was one of this season’s most enjoyable yet which makes it the perfect re-watch ahead of the show’s first episode of the new year!
