Cast

The season began on a controversial note. Three new cast members were announced in mid-September: Chloe Fineman, Shane Gillis, and Bowen Yang.[1] However, shortly after the announcement, comments by Gillis were unearthed that included racial and homophobic slurs. Amidst growing outrage and a flurry of articles and angry social media posts, NBC dropped Gillis from the upcoming cast. Gillis' tenure lasted a mere five days, breaking the record for the shortest tenure on SNL.
