The news comes as the April 1 episode comes under the threat of a strike. A group of around 20 of the show’s post-production editors, represented by the Motion Picture Editors Guild, have threatened to strike over pay and benefits. While talks are continuing, as revealed by Deadline, and NBC has vowed to resolve the issue by the end of the month, it could cause bother for the episode.

The Brunson news was revealed tonight during the Jenna Ortega-hosted show. The Wednesday star followed Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Woody Harrelson as guest hosts.

Other hosts this season have included Pedro Pascal, Michael B. Jordan, Aubrey Plaza, Austin Butler, Steve Martin & Martin Short, Keke Palmer, Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Jack Harlow, Megan Thee Stallion, Brendan Gleeson and Miles Teller.
