‘SNL’: Michael Che Says He Expects To Stay On NBC Late-Night Show

Saturday Night Live saw one of its biggest exodus in last week’s season finale – with Deadline breaking the news that Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney were leaving alongside Pete Davidson.

There’s still chatter as to whether others will stay on the show for season 48 with much speculation about the likes of Weekend Update hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost as well as Cecily Strong in what Lorne Michaels called a “year of change”.

Che, however, revealed that he is expecting to stay.

“I think I’m staying,” Che told Bill Simmons on The Ringer founder’s eponymous podcast. “I never know, it’s hard, once the season’s over it’s best to not to make decisions like towards the end of the year because all you want to do is get out of there, you’ve had your fill, but August or September is usually a different story. I don’t have any plans to leave just yet.”

Simmons made a joking comparison to Tom Brady, that one shouldn’t decide to retire immediately after the season ends.

Head writer Che himself joined SNL in 2013 and became a featured player in 2014. He recently passed Seth Meyers to become the second longest-tenured Weekend Update host behind Jost.

Che has been busy outside of SNL over the last year with HBO Max series That Damn Michael Che, which came back for a second season today, and Netflix comedy special Michael Che: Shame the Devil.

‘Anna K’ Producing Duo on How the Ukraine War Has Hit Russia’s Booming TV Industry
Christopher Vourlias Powerhouse producers Valeriy Fedorovich and Evgeniy Nikishov, the creative duo behind Netflix’s first Russian original series, “Anna K,” quietly left 1-2-3 Production in early March and are now focused on their Moscow-based shingle MC2.Though the announcement was formally made just days removed from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Fedorovich said the plan to leave the Gazprom-Media-backed production outfit had been set in motion long ago.“When we set up our own company, it was clear that we [would] have to say goodbye to 1-2-3 Production,” Fedorovich told Variety. “We used to work for others; now we want to work for ourselves.”As the co-heads of the Moscow-based outfit which they launched in 2018, Fedorovich and Nikishov were the creative force behind the plague thriller “To the Lake,” a series that made top 10 lists across the globe after it was acquired by Netflix, and wrapped production last year on the streamer’s first original Russian drama series, “Anna K,” a contemporary retelling of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel “Anna Karenina.” They were also tapped to produce the Netflix original series “Nothing Special.” But the war in Ukraine, which entered its fourth month this week, has left many high-profile Russian film and TV projects in limbo, as global streaming platforms, international distributors and a range of industry partners have either suspended or pressed pause on their Russian operations.Fedorovich and Nikishov could not comment on the status of either of the two Netflix series currently in the pipeline.
