Netflix. The exciting news was revealed Wednesday by fellow funnyman David Spade, eight months on from the “Saturday Night Live” star’s untimely passing. “I definitely cried,” Spade stated, saying he saw the footage alongside five of Macdonald’s closest friends following a belated memorial service in Los Angeles last weekend.

The “Weekend Update” legend died last September at the age of 61, following a nine-year battle with leukemia, which he kept secret from the public.

The death came as a shock to fans all around the world — but they will now be heartened to know that more Macdonald material was in the pipeline and that it could soon be coming to screens.

Spade spoke about the special during the latest episode of his “Fly on the Wall” podcast with Dana Carvey, saying Macdonald recorded the rough run-through while at home alone, as theaters were closed amid the COVID-19 lockdowns. “He just said ‘You know, I keep trying to do my set’ and he was getting weaker, which we didn’t know,” Spade stated. “They keep shutting down theaters, and they wouldn’t let him go, so then he goes, ‘I’m just gonna run it once, just kind of say it out loud.'”The funnyman said that the jokes included in the final standup were “classic Norm stuff.”Spade was among the attendees at Macdonald’s memorial service in Hollywood last weekend, with Bill Murray, Molly Shannon and Conan O’Brien also reported to be present at the event.
