Fans of funnyman Jason Sudeikis, rejoice. The comedian will return to Saturday Night Live until at least January, executive producer Lorne Michaels confirmed Tuesday night.

It has been a summer of uncertainty regarding Sudeikis’ return. As election season picks up, his Mitt Romney impression will be essential to SNL's political skits.

The show also announced earlier this week that three new cast members had been hired after favorites Kristin Wiig and Andy Samberg stepped down last season. "Featured players" Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Tim Robinson will join guest host Seth MacFarlane - and the returning Sudeikis - at the show’s 38th season premiere Saturday.
