Quinta Brunson trades in school at Studio 8H.
The Abbott Elementary creator and star makes his hosting debut Saturday Night Live April 1.
She will be joined by musical guest Lil Yachty.
This came as the April 1 episode was threatened with a strike. A group of about 20 of the show’s post-production editors, represented by the Film Editors Guild, has threatened to strike over pay and benefits. While negotiations are ongoing, Deadline reports, and NBC has promised to resolve the issue by the end of the month, it could cause trouble over the episode.
The news was announced during the show hosted by Jenna Ortega. The star followed Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Woody Harrelson on Wednesday.
Other hosts this season include Pedro Pascal, Michael B. Jordan, Aubrey Plaza, Austin Butler, Steve Martin and Martin Short, Keke Palmer, Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Jack Harlow, Megan T. Stallion, Brendan Gleason and Miles Teller.
