Saturday Night Live Reveals Season 44 Premiere Host, Musical Guest

Posted by September 17, 2018 Comment

We’re about two weeks out from the 44th season premiere of long-running NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live (SNL), and now we know who’s going to be hosting, and the musical guest for the first episode.

In a tweet from Saturday Night Live (SNL) today, it was revealed that Adam Driver will host, returning to the position after his season 41, episode 10 appearance back in 2016 that gave us such gems as Matt the Radar Technician.

Kayne West will be the musical guest, marking his 7th appearance on the show.


We reported earlier today which of the SNL featured talent had been promoted to main cast, and who we’d be seeing return this year on cast.

SNL returns for season 44 on NBC on Saturday, September 28th 2018.
