Saturday Night Live Postpones Next Three Shows Because of Coronavirus

It was just announced today (March 16) that SNL decided to postpone the next three episodes amid concerns of coronavirus. You can read more about their decision below. Stay safe out there, everyone. And if you can, please stay home!

“Saturday Night Live” postponed its next three shows because of coronavirus concerns, a source close to the NBC sketch comedy show confirmed to Variety.

“SNL” was supposed to return on March 28 with host John Krasinski and musical guest Dua Lipa. But since “Saturday Night Live” films in front of a live audience in New York City, one of the epicenters of the coronavirus outbreak, this postponement was inevitable.

But the cancellation is the latest disruption in the entertainment world, which has seen dozens of television shows and movies shut production down in the past week. In fact, Krasinski was hosting the show to promote the sequel to “A Quiet Place,” which was postponed indefinitely last week. Its was originally scheduled to hit theaters March 18.

On March 7, Daniel Craig, whose James Bond movie “No Time To Die” has been pushed until November, hosted “Saturday Night Live,” and his opening monologue made mention of the delay, which had happened earlier that week.

  1. They might as well consider stopping the season at this point. The season normally ends in May and we’re already in mid-March with no end in sight yet for the Coronavirus.

    1. That’s true, and with everything getting canceled this might as well be the case this year. But I think at this point we have to wait and see what happens. If the virus gets controlled and they can produce more episodes, this might just be an unusual season, ending later in June or July.
