Molly Kearney has been added as a featured player for the upcoming 48th season of “Saturday Night Live.” They will be joined by Marcello Hernandez, Michael Longfellow, and Devon Walker in the new lineup. This comes after news of more “SNL” cast members exiting the show.
Kearney has been in the news for their standup set at Comedy Central’s “Up Next” showcase in 2019. They also starred in Amazon’s recent “A League of Their Own,” and appeared in Disney+ series “The Mighty Ducks.”
Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, Melissa Villaseñor, and Alex Moffat have left some big shoes to fill. We’re hopeful Kearney and the other new cast members will do a good job.
It may be awkward at first as we get used to their brand of comedy, but the show will pull through. Or it won’t! We’ll find out on October 1st when season 48 premieres on NBC and Peacock.
