Two weeks after its unusual experiment with shelter-in-place comedy, “Saturday Night Live” plans to try it again.

A post on the show’s Twitter account announced, “We’re back this Saturday!” It was accompanied by a clip of cast member Colin Jost adjusting a camera lens as his castmates deal with technical hitches of their own.

On the first “SNL at Home” show on April 11, all the sequences were recorded earlier, and all featured cast members and guests performing alone from home, sometimes interacting with other actors.

No host or musical guest was announced, as was the case two weeks ago. On that episode, actor and coronavirus patient Tom Hanks was the surprise host, and he introduced a musical performance by Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Alec Baldwin and Larry David made guest appearances.
