Saturday Night Live, entering its 38th season on NBC has added three new featured cast members. The NBC sketch comedy show will now welcome Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong to the cast.

Bryant is known through her work with iO Chicago, Annoyance Theatre and as an ensemble member of the Second City E.T.C. Stage with Robinson. He has performed at the iO Theater in Chicago and at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Strong, too, has studied at the iO Theatre and has performed as a member of the Second City National Touring Company.

This enlisting of new players have become necessary after Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg parted ways with the show after the 2011-2012 season finale. Jason Sudeikis is still in question about staying through the full next season and Abbie Elliott announced earlier this summer that she would not be returning to the cast.

 Saturday Night Live will start back up on September 15 with host Seth MacFarlane and musical guest Frank Ocean.
