The longtime SNL cast member, who joined the show when he was just 20, has been a part of the series for seven seasons.

So you can probably imagine how surprising it was to see Pete in the Season 47 premiere over the weekend, which featured Owen Wilson as host and a musical performance from Kacey Musgraves.

“I’m definitely taking it very seriously and I’m doing my research,” Pete said during an interview with Billboard. “Because Joey did a bit of everything and we’re following his life, so you’re going to see a bit of that. It’s a lot, man.”

Either way, it’s so so so good to see Pete back on SNL!
