How to Watch SNL Season 47 Premiere Coming to Hulu in October

Can you believe that Saturday Night Live has been on the air for over 46 years? The longest-running sketch comedy show in American History returns for its 47th season on October 2nd. 

SNL season 45 was abruptly halted in March of 2021 over Covid-19 concerns, returning briefly in May, with the final three episodes airing entirely from inside cast members’ homes. Season 46 returned live in the studio and was packed full of exciting hosts, musical guests, and skits that addressed the social and political events of the previous week delivered with a unique comedic style like only SNL can. Famous hosts included Chris Rock, Issa Rae, Timothee Chalamet, Dave Chappelle, Adele, Maya Rudolph, John Mulaney, and more. 

There were 20 weeks of amazing musical performances by musical guests including Lil Nas X, Justin Beiber, Bruce Springsteen, and the E Street Band, Machine Gun Kelly, and Miley Cyrus — just to name a few. Kid Cudi gave a memorable performance in a dress similar to honor the late Kurt Cobain. 

Dr. Fauci and Covid-19 quarantines, the presidential election, and cryptocurrency are just a few of the sketch topics covered in season 46. Season 47 is sure to be just as exciting!
