Pete Davidson Will Be The Only New Cast Member on This Season of SNL, Michael Patrick O’Brien Returning as Writer Only

(via Deadline)

Following the announcement of the return of Michael Che, stand-up comedian Pete Davidson, who you probably saw do stand-up on Kimmel earlier this year, is set to be the only new cast member on the 40th season of Saturday Night Live, premiering later this month.

Additionally, Michael Patrick O’Brien who was featured in the cast last year is returning this season as a writer, leaving SNL with less three less players than last year.

However, as SNL casted Sasheer Zamata midseason, don’t think that all of this is written in stone.
