— Saturday Night Live – SNL (@nbcsnl) November 27, 2017
Once again it’s that magical time of year…or month, rather. Saturday Night Live has announced its full slate of hosts and musical guests for the rest of the calendar year. While it’s already been a fantastic season (Gal Gadot was not-so-surprisingly delightful; Chance the Rapper could join the cast right now), these combos will take SNL audiences through to the end of 2017.
December 2: First-time host Saorise Ronan (Lady Bird) and U2
December 9: Fourth-timer James Franco (The Disaster Artist) and Best New Artist nominee SZA
December 16: Kevin Hart returns for the second time to host, and he’s headlining the always major SNL Christmas show with musical guest Foo Fighters.
The reaction on Twitter: people are almost as stoked for these episodes as they are for the holidays.
