Season number 43 of the hit program features newbies Gardner, Null and Redd on its roster for the late night shenanigans formally known as Saturday Night Live.

The newcomers are stepping in after the departures of "SNL" players Bobby Moynihan, Vanessa Bayer and Sasheer Zamata. Redd is the most high profile among the new cast members.

The show is coming off one of its most watched seasons ever which earned it nine Emmy awards, more than any other show.

Comedians Heidi Gardner, Chris Redd and Luke Null will join the sketch comedy when it returns to NBC this weekend. He co-stars on Netflix's Disjointed and delivered a memorable turn as rapper Hunter the Hungry in Lonely Island's 2016 pop mockumentary Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. He later shifted to stand-up and sketch comedy, performing for a time with a Second City touring company.
