"Saturday Night Live" will return this week with a show featuring remotely produced content by writers and cast members.

NBC News reported that the show will include a number of sketches as well as the normal "Weekend Update" segment, though it was reportedly unclear if any elements will be live.

It was also unclear from NBC's report whether the show would feature a guest host as usual or rely instead wholly on cast members and writers for talent.
