It’s that time of the year again! Lorne Michaels is going on an audition tour to find some fresh new performers who will appear for SNL’s 40th season!
For the past month and a half I did my video event called The Best of the Featured Players of SNL Season 39. I shared videos that had to do with the new cast members. I’ve gotten so many likes and reblogs for the past few weeks and I just want to say thank you! I’ve had so much fun doing this blog! Let’s all look forward to what surprises SNL will bring for Season 40!
As most of you just heard, Brooks Wheelan announced yesterday that he will not be returning to SNL this fall. Nasim Pedrad won’t be coming back as well since she is going to LA to be part of a new sitcom for FOX called “Mulaney” starring former SNL writer John Mulaney. And finally, SNL announced this morning that John Milhiser and Noel Wells won’t be coming back to the show. I know that this is a big disappointment to all of us, but they have to do what’s for the best. We are certainly going to miss them and let’s wish them the best of luck to a life after SNL! The remaining featured players left are Beck Bennett, Colin Jost, Kyle Mooney, Mike O’Brien and Sasheer Zamata. Let’s hope that these guys will be able to come back! Let’s also hope and pray that SNL will hire some fresh new talent for the upcoming season!
