Jenna Ortega, Woody Harrelson, and More To Host ‘SNL’
Saturday Night Live‘s season 48 is returning next weekend (February 25) with three new shows back-to-back, and a whole slate of A-list hosts and musical guests.
Kicking off SNL‘s return is Woody Harrelson with musical guest Jack White from the White Stripes next Saturday. The True Detective alum will join the five-timers club when he returns to Studio 8H. Jack White is also making his fifth appearance on the show — once with The White Stripes and three previous times solo.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who’s hot off his Super Bowl LVII victory will be making his SNL debut on March 4. Kelce will be the first athlete to host since football player J.J. Watts hosted in February 2020. Kelce will be joined by another first-timer, musical guest Kelsea Ballerini. During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Kelce, 33, performed the Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right,” the song that he referenced after the Chiefs’ victory on Super Bowl Sunday. He told Fallon that he is “so nervous” about hosting. Fallon assured him that he is going to be great and it will be a “hot show.”
Wednesday star Jenna Ortega is set to host for the first time and will be joined by musical guest The 1975. This makes the English pop rock band’s second turn as SNL musical guests. Larry David hosted in 2016 when the band performed last time.
Pedro Pascal, who stars in the successful HBO drama The Last of Us made his SNL hosting debut earlier this month with musical guest Coldplay. Coldplay has been musical performers for the late-night show seven times.
Saturday Night Live airs live at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
