Saturday Night Live is finishing off the year with a bang. It was announced way back in August that Eddie Murphy would be returning to the show for the first time in over 30 years on December 21st. Now, thanks to SNL‘s official Twitter, we know that Lizzo will be joining him as the musical guest. But that’s not all as Jennifer Lopez and Scarlett Johansson will be hosting in the two weeks before Murphy.

Lopez, set to host on the 7th, last appeared on SNL in February 2010 as both the host and musical guest. This time she’ll be joined by DaBaby in his first time appearing as the show’s musical guest. It will be Lopez’s third time hosting. Johansson will then serve as host for the sixth time a week later on the 14th. She’ll be joined by Niall Horan as the musical guest. Both actresses are having quite the year as Lopez starred in the critical and commercial hit Hustlers earlier this year. Johansson has also received critical and commercial acclaim this year as Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame. She’s also receiving a ton of Oscar buzz for her role in Noah Baumbach’s upcoming divorce film, Marriage Story, due out on December 6th.
SNL is gearing up for the new year by going on a pretty incredible 4-host tear. Along with the aforementioned hosts in December, Will Ferrell is returning to host this week’s episode alongside musical guest King Princess. So, be sure to tune in tomorrow, November 23rd, if you want to catch that episode.
