'Saturday Night Live' Could Return With New Episodes Ahead of Presidential Election

Saturday Night Live might be returning to the studio to shoot new episodes, Variety is reporting.

According to the site, NBC is thinking about filming new shows which will air ahead of the Presidential Election in November between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and maybe this other candidate.

Discussions are apparently ongoing as the pandemic is guiding how states and cities across the nation deal with a rise in coronavirus cases.

A potential approach that was submitted would be to make the show in a “controlled environment,” which means that it would only have the necessary persons and crew on set and eliminating a studio audience.

A premiere date for SNL‘s upcoming Season 46 hasn’t been announced just yet. The last regular episode of season 45 featured host Daniel Craig in March.

He was there to promote No Time To Die, which has also been delayed by the pandemic.
