Saturday Night Live‘s 40th season is suddenly looking up.
SNL scribe Leslie Jones — who brought the house down riffing on relationships during a “Weekend Update” segment last month — has been promoted to a full-fledged castmember, TVLine has confirmed.
Her new status takes effect with this weekend’s Jim Carrey-hosted show, reports our sister site Deadline.
Jones joined SNL‘s writing team last season, and made her first on-camera appearance via a controversial May “Weekend Update” segment about slavery.
