Saturday Night Live has recruited a trio of industry heavyweights to help kick off the show's 48th season.
NBC announced on Tuesday that the long-running sketch series will return on Oct. 1 with Miles Teller as host. This marks Teller's first time hosting the show.
The season 48 host casting news comes as SNL is navigating a major shakeup. Longtime series regulars Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson exited after the season 47 finale.
"Being a part of SNL has been the experience of a lifetime. Five years ago, I walked into 30 Rock knowing that this was an amazing opportunity for growth," Redd, 37, said in a statement. "Now, with friends who have become family and memories I will cherish forever, I'm grateful to [creator] Lorne Michaels and to the entire SNL organization. From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank you all enough."

"There are new people, and things are changing, and a different generation comes into the show," Michaels told reporters backstage at the 2022 Emmy Awards, adding that it's an "exciting" time for the show.
