Kristen Wiig to Host ‘SNL’ for Second Time Since Leaving Show

She’ll have a tough act to follow after Dave Chappelle’s turn this weekend

Kristen Wiig is set to return to “Saturday Night Live” as host later this month. The stint will mark the “SNL” alum’s second turn since leaving the show after seven seasons.

The xx will make their musical guest debut on Wiig’s Nov. 19 episode. The group’s third album, “I See You,” will be released on Jan. 13.

Wiig first hosted her old haunt on May 11, 2013, which was Season 38 Episode 20. Her musical guest at that time was Vampire Weekend.

“SNL” is being quite cagey about how long Alec Baldwin will continue to play Donald Trump, now that the president-elect shocked the world with his Tuesday win. “Saturday Night Live” won’t even comment on Baldwin’s participation (or lack thereof) this weekend, though it would be a major blow if the sketch comedy show had to switch gears for an acceptance speech skit.

Dave Chappelle will host this Saturday’s show (Nov. 12) with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest.

Saturday Night Live” is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
