This is either a trick, or a real treat.
Tom Hanks tweeted out part of a script on Thursday night — but no, it’s not more “Da Vinci Code” stuff. The prolific actor shared a photo of the stage direction and opening lyrics to “The David S. Pumpkins Song.”
For the uninitiated (and missing-out), David S. Pumpkins is a bizarre “Saturday Night Live” character Hanks introduced us to last Halloween. Could the oddity and his dancing skeletons return to “SNL” late next month? It kind of looks like that, and we sure hope so.
Here is Hanks’ tweet:

Yes, Tom, we have so many questions.
It is pretty atypical for the Lorne Michaels’ series to write sketches so far in advance, so it’s possible that this is not an actual “SNL” script. TheWrap reached out to a show rep and asked, but we did not immediately hear back.
For now, enjoy the Halloween 2016 version of David S. Pumpkins via the video above.
