Lorne Michaels Announces 'SNL'  Cast Changes Are Coming

Lorne Michaels has revealed that cast changes will be in place for the upcoming 40th season of "Saturday Night Live."

Michaels admitted that the show's latest season was a difficult one due to cast changes. He told "Deadline" in an interview: "It was a hard season. We put a lot of pressure [on] a lot of new people. We're still in the middle of rebuilding. So, there will be changes this year."

He explained: "We lost four leading men at the end of last season, Fred [Armisen] and Bill [Hader] and Andy [Samberg] and Jason [Sudeikis], all of whom were very seasoned, very strong cast. [ . . . ] We lost Kristen the year before. All have been here a long time, and you get used to how good people are."

The show struggled to maintain viewership numbers last season.
