NBC says “Saturday Night Live” has added six featured players to its roster.
Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, Mike O’Brien, Noel Wells and Brooks Wheelan will join the troupe as “SNL” enters its 39th season on Sept. 28.
Meanwhile, “SNL” executive producer Lorne Michaels says longtime “Weekend Update” anchor Seth Meyers will be joined at the “Update” desk by Cecily Strong. Last season was strong’s first as an “SNL” regular.
Michaels says the plan has Strong initially sharing the “Update” desk with Meyers, then going solo when he begins hosting “Late Night” in February. An alternative option might find Meyers remaining as “Update” co-anchor even after starting his “Late Night” duties.
