Saturday Night Live will kick off Season 46 on Oct. 3 with everybody from Season 45 returning. McKinnon's initial SNL deal expired in 2019. She signed a one-year deal to return last season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the last time SNL didn't have turnover between seasons was Season 33 in 2007, though Maya Rudolph left the show four episodes into that season and Casey Wilson joined after the 2007-08 writers' strike. McKinnon's future seemed to be in doubt because of her one-year contract renewal last year and because she has an Elizabeth Holmes Hulu series and a Joe Exotic Peacock series in the works. It's unclear if McKinnon will miss any episodes this season.
