‘Saturday Night Live’ adds three new cast members

Aidy Bryant, TIm Robinson and Cecily Strong (Second City)
With rumors flying all summer about who’s staying and who’s leaving “Saturday Night Live” during an election year, NBC finally made an official announcement on Monday — three new faces will be joining the cast this month.

Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong, all alums of Chicago’s famous Second City improv, will join “SNL” as featured players.

“SNL” kicks off its 38th season on Saturday, with host Seth MacFarlane and musical guest Frank Ocean.

Earlier this year, Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott confirmed they were leaving the show; Jason Sudeikis is still up in the air, so no word on whether his Mitt Romney character will continue through the election season.
