With all of the major late-night talk shows back on the air, the largest missing piece has been NBC’s long-running Saturday Night Live. How the show could return during quarantine was unclear, but it seems a solution has been found.
Saturday Night Live announced via its Twitter account on Thursday that the show will be returning this Saturday. The hashtag states #SNLAtHome and included a screenshot of the cast together via a video conference.

How exactly the episode will be structured is unclear at this time. While it would be simple to carry out something such as the Weekend Update segment, do any form of sketches feels like it would be difficult.
The Saturday Night Live quarantine edition will debut on Saturday, April 11, at 11:30pm Eastern.
