When "Saturday Night Live" returns this weekend for its 38th season, there will be some familiar faces missing from the lineup, but there will also be three new hopefuls in the cast.

The three new performers, Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong, all hail from Chicago, where they have sketch and improv backgrounds.

Bryant was a member of the Second City E.T.C. stage, Robinson performed on the Second City main stage as well as part of the national touring company and Strong was also a member of the national touring company.

The trio will round out a cast that saw two of its biggest stars, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, depart at the end of last season. Additionally, Abby Elliott, daughter of "SNL" alum Chris Elliott, left the show over the summer. And longtime performer Jason Sudeikis still hasn't announced if he'll remain with the show for the entire season.

The season premiere will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane with Frank Ocean as musical guest.
