For Sweeney, landing the SNL gig caps a meteoric rise over the past few years. After churning away in various small TV roles throughout the 2010s, she broke out in Hulu’s adaptation of “The Handmaid’s Tale” in 2017. But her star-making performance came as Cassie on “Euphoria,” the Zendaya-led Gen Z sensation that became a global phenomenon for HBO.

As the insecure but quick-witted Cassie, Sweeney has garnered universal acclaim, earning back-to-back Supporting Actress Emmy nods. Now she’ll attempt to demonstrate her comedy chops on the venerable SNL stage.

Joining Sweeney as musical guest on March 5th is Kacey Musgraves. A six-time Grammy winner, Musgraves represents the Nashville country scene but with an indie singer-songwriter flair. Her acclaimed 2018 album “Golden Hour” took top prize at that year’s ceremony. Musgraves is sure to lend an extra dash of talent and star power to what already shapes up as a can’t-miss Sweeney-hosted SNL.

For pop culture fans, it’s exciting to see one of Hollywood’s fastest-rising young talents in Sydney Sweeney get such a plum gig so early in her career. Tuning in to see if she can nail the comedy beat in a high-pressure environment like Saturday Night Live just adds to the must-see intrigue. Especially with an indie music darling like Musgraves backing her up on the mic.

Set those DVRs now, because Sydne Sweeney is about to take Studio 8H by storm on March 5th. And we can’t wait to see television’s It Girl continue her ascendance.
