Five days before the season premiere of its 38th season, Saturday Night Live announced a trio of newcomers who will fill out the cast after Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliott departed the show. Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong will be the new featured players when Seth MacFarlane and Frank Ocean headline this weekend. All three are veterans of the Chicago improv scene, including The Second City, fertile recruiting ground for the show since the days of John Belushi and Bill Murray.

Watch a clip of all three:
