The show will include a new edition of “Weekend Update,” as well as a series of other sketches produced entirely by cast and crew members at home

NBC News senior media reporter Dylan Byers reports that this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live will be produced one hundred percent remotely, away from 30 Rock. The episode will air at the show’s usual time, but NBC has yet to announce whether “Weekend Update” and the sketches will air live, or if they will be pre-recorded earlier in the day.

According to Byers, sources close to the show claim that “Tom Hanks may be involved. When reached for a statement, NBC declined to comment on Hanks’ involvement. Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus since mid-March, when NBC halted production on its late night shows due to concerns about the novel coronavirus.
