Saturday Night Live is coming off two of its better shows of season 48 so far. So what should SNL fans expect to see tonight on NBC?

Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce proved to be a more than capable SNL host back on March 4. Scream VI star Jenna Ortega followed that up with a performance showcasing why she’s one of the most talented actresses working right now. It looks like momentum is on SNL’s side.

Unfortunately, we won’t get to see how the show runs with it on Saturday. There will not be a new episode of Saturday Night Live tonight.

Instead, NBC will reair the January 28 episode during the normal 11:30 p.m. ET timeslot. Fans get another chance to see host Michael B. Jordan along with musical guest Lil Baby.

Tune in to the network a little earlier in the night to see another vintage episode. At 10:00, NBC will air the December 11, 2004 episode. Oscar-nominee Colin Farrell hosted, while Scissor Sisters performed as the musical guest.

When does Saturday Night Live return with brand new episodes?

While it would have been nice to see Saturday Night Live on the air tonight, delivering some more St. Patrick’s Day sketches, a break is understandable. The show is nearing the homestretch of the season which typically ends in early May.

The good news is that we know when Saturday Night Live will be back. Abbott Elementary star Quinta Brunson makes her SNL debut when she hosts on April 1. Rapper Lil Yachty is scheduled to join her as the musical guest.

Beyond that, SNL has yet to announce any other hosts or a show schedule. But the April 1 episode will likely give us an update on who we’ll see in Studio 8H next month.
