Mitt Romney and Joe Biden might be chagrined to hear it, but Saturday Night Live fans will be thrilled to hear that Jason Sudeikis will be back when the show returns this Saturday. NBC has officially confirmed what Entertainment Weekly reported in its Fall Television Preview issue, that the 36-year-old funnyman — who lampoons both politicians — has decided to return to the cast after a summer of silence on the matter.

When Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg announced their departures last spring, attention shifted to Sudeikis, whose contract was also up. In July, he hinted that he was leaning towards leaving, telling Men’s Journal, “It’s an amazing job and a horrible job,” he says. “You really do serve the show. It’s just like playing in a community college. Everybody knows they’re not going to be there forever. Even the coach wants to go to a D-I school.”

With his return to SNL, Sudeikis will pair with Bill Hader as the two pillars of the show, guaranteeing that election season — which includes two SNL primetime specials — will include his presidential parodies.
