NBC is welcoming back “Saturday Night Live.” Lorne Michaels’ hit sketch comedy show is back in Studio 8H with the Season 46 premiere. Tonight’s new “SNL” episode will include several famous guest stars.

The "SNL" Season 46 premiere will air on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 11:30 p.m. EDT on NBC, live coast-to-coast. Chris Rock, who stars in the new season of FX’s “Fargo,” will host alongside musical guest Megan Thee Stallion.

The new episode will welcome back former cast member Maya Rudolph as Kamala Harris, a role she played during last year’s debate sketches. She won an Emmy last month in the best guest actress in a comedy category for her portrayal of the senator on “SNL.”

Actor Woody Harrelson, who played Joe Biden last year, will not reprise his role as the former Vice President. Neither will previous “SNL” Biden impersonators Jason Sudeikis and John Mulaney. Instead, Jim Carrey will play the role.

Carrey has only appeared on “SNL” a few times, hosting in 1996, 2011 and 2014. Apparently, the “Bruce Almighty” actor expressed interest in the role, and “SNL” writers agreed that he was great for the part.

“There was some interest on his part,” Michaels, who runs “SNL,” told Vulture. “And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength...Hopefully it’s funny.”

Saturday’s season premiere is the cast’s first “Saturday Night Live” in-studio since March. A few episodes of “SNL At Home” finished up last season, but all were pre-taped.

They already have announced Oct. 10 and Oct. 17 guests. Comic Bill Burr will host with country star Morgan Wallen as the musical guest for the second episode. “Insecure” creator/star Issa Rae and singer Justin Bieber will be brought in for the Oct. 17 episode.

“SNL” airs live Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. EDT on NBC.
