Saturday Night Live Season 48 Host Speculation: Tom Cruise? Kaley Cuoco? Keke Palmer? Millie Bobby Brown?

SNL Season 48 Hosts Speculation - List

Tom Cruise has a need, a need for speed — and what better thrill ride than 90 minutes of live sketch comedy?

The Top Gun: Maverick star has been making movies almost as long as Saturday Night Live has been on the air. Yet, in the series’ 47-year history, Cruise has not made a single appearance. That could — and, we predict, will — change this fall, when NBC’s flagship late-night series kicks off Season 48.

According to TVLine’s trusty crystal ball, several first-time hosts will grace Studio 8H in the coming months, including Star Wars vet Diego Luna (who is headlining Rogue One prequel Andor for Disney+), Ted Lasso‘s Hannah Waddingham (who will be appearing in the highly anticipated Hocus Pocus 2) and The Flight Attendant‘s Kaley Cuoco (who, let’s be real, would have been more than ready for the gig during any point in The Big Bang Theory‘s 12-season run).

Scroll down to see who else might host SNL this fall — a Season 48 premiere date remains TBA — then hit the comments with your top picks.
