"I'm not gonna tell you much, only because we haven't announced who's hosting and who the first four are, but I don't think anybody will be heartbroken," Michaels said of the show's lineup. "I think people will be happy with what we have."

He also teased Sudeikis' return to the show, sharing, "He'll be coming back soon. I'm very happy about that."

Sudeikis -- who took home two Emmys on Sunday for his work on Ted Lasso -- joined SNL as a featured player in 2005, and was a key part of the cast until his departure in 2013.
