Jason Sudeikis will return for the 38th season of Saturday Night Live, producer Lorne Michaels confirmed to The New York Times. Sudeikis had previously expressed interest in fresh creative opportunities if he were to stay with the show, though his Mitt Romney impression appeared crucial for the upcoming presidential election season. Michaels says Sudeikis will stay at least through January, but did not write off the possibility of a full-season stint, calling Sudeikis "a fiercely loyal guy."

Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott all departed SNL after last season. Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson joined the cast earlier this week. Family Guy creator and Ted mastermind Seth MacFarlene hosts SNL's September 15th season premiere, with R&B star Frank Ocean as musical guest.
