Saturday Night Live is coming back for Season 47 this weekend, and we already know who’ll be hosting it all month long. The legendary sketch show unveiled the first rooster of hosts and musical guests, and here’s what we can expect from them.

Owen Wilson (October 2)

Wilson will make his hosting debut after experiencing somewhat of a career renaissance following his appearance in the Disney+ series Loki. He’s a veteran comedian, so it makes a lot of sense to have him host, especially since his next movie The French Dispatch is just around the corner.

Kim Kardashian (October 9)

Some were confused by SNL’s decision to have Kardashian host since she’s not a natural comedian, but she won’t be the first host with no comedy background. The show poked fun of her on countless occasions in the past, so it will be fun to see her get the last laugh.

Rami Malek (October 16)

Picking Malek as SNL host makes total sense since he’s currently busy promoting No Time to Die. He’s not known for his work as a comedian, but he has one Oscar under his belt so we’re pretty sure he’ll do just fine.

Jason Sudeikis (October 23)

It’s a shocker that Jason Sudeikis never returned to host SNL since his departure, but his return comes at the perfect time. He recently won an Emmy for his work on Ted Lasso, and it will be a true delight to see him back at 30 Rock.
