By Samantha Vincenty

It's official: We're just a few episodes away from the end of Saturday Night Live's 49th season, but the next two weeks will bring plenty of laughs before the season finale on May 18 with Host Jake Gyllenhaal. 

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

The Season 49 cast largely retained its fantastic roster from Season 48 — solely adding one new cast member with featured player Chloe Troast — and now, the full line-up of SNL Season 49 Hosts has been revealed.

Season 48 brought excellent episodes hosted by the likes of Password Host Keke Palmer (who announced her pregnancy on the show) and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (who's already put in a cameo in Season 49), as well as Emmy-nominated stints from Pedro Pascal and Abbott Elementary's Quinta Brunson

Returning in October 2023, Season 49 kicked off with a premiere hosted by former cast member Pete Davidson, who delivered a touching cold open that connected his love of comedy and SNL with the death of his firefighter father on September 11, 2001.

Then, Latin music superstar Bad Bunny pulled double duty as Host and musical guest, Emma Stone earned her Five-Timers Club jacket, and Kate McKinnon returned to host SNL's 2023 Christmas episode, which featured surprise appearances from Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. Who will host SNL for the first time in 2024? And which favorites will return? You'll know the second we do.

Here is every single person who hosted SNL in Season 49.

Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, known by the stage name Bad Bunny, is a Puerto Rican singer, rapper, and actor. The Grammy-winning artist, who headlined Coachella in 2023 and closed 2022 as Spotify's most-streamed artist for the third year in a row, was SNL's October 21 Host and musical guest. 

The hosting gig was technically Bad Bunny's third appearance on Saturday Night Live. He was a musical guest on February 20, 2021, and appeared in two sketches in the episode: "Sea Shanty" and the pretaped sketch "Loco." He also made a (remote) surprise cameo in a sketch of Kenan Thompson's during an April 25, 2020 "SNL at Home" episode in the Covid-19 pandemic.

Grammy-nominated stand-up comedian Nate Bargatze hosted the October 28 episode of SNL. Known for his family-friendly humor, Bargatze released his most recent comedy special, Hello World, on Amazon Prime in January 2023. 

Bargatze has appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon thirteen times, most recently in Jimmy Fallon's second week back on the air after a five-month absence. As Bargatze told Fallon, when Be Funny made a stop in his home state of Tennessee, his event shattered Nashville venue the Bridgestone Arena's attendance record, with 19,365 people in the audience. 

The comic set another record on October 28: Nate Bargatze's SNL was the most-watched night of the season to date with 4.8 million viewers—and the most-watched episode since Steve Martin and Martin Short's in December 2022.
