In the 2013-2014 Fall Season, "Saturday Night Live" will have six new featured players, and one new co-host on the "Weekend Update" segment desk. Starting with this season, Cecily Strong will co-anchor "Weekend Update" with Seth Meyers. Seth Meyers will be the new host of "Late Night" in 2014 succeeding Jimmy Fallon as Fallon will take over as the new host of "The Tonight Show." Meyers may stay on as a cast member for the first half of season 39, then leave in 2014 to prepare for becoming the new host of "Late Night." Lorne Michaels has stated he hopes to keep Meyers at the "Weekend Update" desk until the end of the 39th season. Meyers will step down as head writer of "SNL."
Lorne Michaels has upgraded writer Michael Patrick O'Brien to the cast as a featured player, and hired Upright Citizens Brigade, Los Angeles performers Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, Noël Wells, and stand-up comedian Brooks Wheelan (who will also write). O'Brien has been a writer since 2009, while Mooney and Bennett are members of the sketch group, Good Neighbor.
