We officially know one “SNL” cast member returning in the fall, and this is yuge

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression on Saturday Night Live is really the gift that keeps on giving (right up there alongside Melissa McCarthy‘s Sean Spicer and all-star SNL cast member, The Grim Reaper, who plays Steve Bannon). So now, prepare yourself for a whole lot more pouting, squinting and questionable wigs — because Baldwin is officially coming back to SNL for season 43.

“Yeah, we’re going to fit that in, he told CNN. “I think people have enjoyed it.

Sadly, don’t expect too much of Baldwin in the upcoming season. The actor added that because of his busy schedule, viewers can expect “a couple celery sticks” instead of  a “whole meal.” But listen, we’ll take what we can get.

This all comes as a happy surprise, because Baldwin had actually told Extra back in March that he might not be able to bring himself to play Trump anymore.

“The maliciousness of this White House has people worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation," he explained. "I don’t know how much more people can take it.

Errrm, we think he might be a littttle off in thinking that people don’t want to see him do his spot-on Trump impression. As in, he has brought in the highest ratings SNL has seen the past SIX years.

Now, if we could just get confirmation that we’ll get McCarthy back in there with her fire extinguisher and motorized podium, we’ll be all set to go for the most epic SNL season yet.
