Some new players are coming to SNL this season, and some familiar faces are leaving.
Will Forte recently announced that he is leaving SNL.
Now, Jenny Slate is leaving too. She debuted on SNL last season, with a BIG screw up. She was in a sketch with Kristen Wiig where they said “freaking” as almost every other word, but Jenny dropped the F-Bomb on live TV in her first sketch.
It’s also been reported that SNL has added 3 new players, so that could be why Jenny was let go. Jenny’s contract wasn’t renewed by SNL/NBC.
SNL regular, Amy Poehler, who was on the show from 2001-2008 will host the season premiere, with musical guest [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm] on September 25th.
