Tim Robinson, Aidy Bryant

How does one go about replacing the likes of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliott on Saturday Night Live? By snatching up more Second City alums, of course!

NBC announced today that three new castmembers have been added to the 38th season of the legendary Saturday Night Live.

Aidy Bryant (pictured left) has trained with iO Chicago, Annoyance Theatre and was an ensemble member of the Second City E.T.C Stage based in Chicago. Tim Robinson (right)  performed on the Second City Mainstage and was part of their National Touring Company. Cecily Strong (not pictured), also a member of the Second City National Touring Company, has studied at the iO Theater. 

Family Guy and Ted star Seth McFarlane will be hosting the SNL season premiere on Sept. 15, with Frank Ocean performing. Joseph Gordon-Levitt will host on Sept. 22 with musical guest Mumford & Sons, followed by Daniel Craig on Oct. 6 and Muse performing.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
