Kristen Wiig Returns to SNL as Final November Host
We’re still not entirely certain how SNL will fare with controversial (if revered) comedian Dave Chappelle hosting the first post-election episode, but at least the end of November looks a bit more familiar. Kristen Wiig will make her second return to SNL, hosting the final installment of this long, gloomy month.
Per NBC’s official confirmation, Wiig will return to her SNL stomping grounds to host the November 19 episode, joined by musical guest The xx. Wiig actually hosted back in 2013 as well, having left the series with Season 37 in 2012.
Returning to SNL will also reunite Wiig with at least two of her Ghostbusters co-stars in Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, but it remains to be seen if Melissa McCarthy, or any other stars would draw reference to the summer film. The xx, meanwhile, will be making their SNL debut performance.
