Exciting news, Saturday Night Live fans. Former cast member and beloved actress Kristen Wiig is hosting Saturday Night Live this May!
Wiig will host the May 11th episode with musical guest Vampire Weekend. The band will be making their third appearance on the show. Their next album Modern Vampires of the City is set for release May 14th.
We also learned today that Ben Affleck will host the May 18th episode, which is the Saturday Night Live season 38 finale, with musical guest Kanye West. It’ll be the fifth time both Affleck and West are appearing on the show.
As previously announced, Zach Galifianakis will host May 4th with musical guest Of Monsters and Men. Galifianakis will be promoting The Hangover 3.
Wiig obviously couldn’t stay away for a while. She left the show just last year after a seven year run on the legendary late night sketch show. She’ll be there to promote upcoming films Girl Most Likely, Despicable Me 2, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Which characters do you hope Wiig will bring back? The Target woman? Aunt Linda? Gilly? Judy Grimes? We hope the episode is largely classic Wiig characters brought back to life.
