It was a big week in the world of late-night television. But will it end with a brand new episode of Saturday Night Live? Here’s what SNL fans can expect tonight on NBC.

This week saw the end of James Corden’s run as host of The Late Late Show. Some may recall that the late-night host made a cameo on SNL as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson a few years back. Corden’s exit, along with some major stories out of Washington and from cable news, created a busy week for late-night.

Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Saturday Night Live join in on it all. There will not be a new episode of Saturday Night Live tonight.

Instead, NBC will reair the February 4 episode. Interested fans can revisit Pedro Pascal’s performance as host along with the musical guest Coldplay.

Anyone looking for a bonus vintage SNL episode at 10:00 p.m. will also be disappointed. NBC airs The Fate of the Furious beginning at 8 p.m., so that will overlap with what typically is a vintage SNL episode.

When does Saturday Night Live return?

Tonight makes two consecutive weeks that Saturday Night Live has been off. The show last ran a new episode back on April 15 with first-time host Ana de Armas.

The good news is that we know when Saturday Night Live will be back. And when it does, it will be to welcome home a familiar face.

Former cast member Pete Davidson will host the next new episode on May 6. He’ll be joined by musical guest Lil Uzi Vert. Davidson left SNL after last season, and he stars in the upcoming series Bupkis. The Lorne Michaels-produced comedy is loosely based on Davidson’s life. It’s already drawn comparisons to Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
