Jason Sudeikis to Return to SNL
It’s official—he’s coming back! Entertainment Weekly reported that Jason Sudeikis will return for the 38th season of Saturday Night Live.
Sudeikis’ contract was up at the end of last season just like those of his former cast members Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg. For the entire summer he left fans wondering if he would follow in the footsteps of Wiig and Samberg and leave the show. In an interview with Men’s Journal Sudeikis had hinted that there was a possibility that he would not return.
“It’s an amazing job and a horrible job,” he told the magazine. “You really do serve the show. It’s just like playing in a community college. Everybody knows they’re not going to be there forever. Even the coach wants to go to a D-I school.”
The news of Sudeikis’ return to SNL comes just in time for the upcoming election season which is always a big part of the late-night sketch show. Two of Sudeikis’ most famous impressions are of Mitt Romney and Joe Biden.
The 38th season of SNL is set to begin on Sept. 15. Audiences can also look forward to two SNL primetime election specials airing Sept. 20 and Sept. 27.
