Saturday Night Live is about to get the Hamilton treatment.
The sketch comedy show has announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda will be hosting SNL's Oct. 8 episode, with musical guest Twenty One Pilots.
Miranda recently finished his Hamilton run on Broadway, and next week's episode of SNL will mark his first time serving as the popular late-night program's host. 
Saturday Night Live returns Oct. 1, with Margot Robbie as host and The Weeknd as musical guest.
But back to Miranda, the Broadway big shot has had a lot on his plate since leaving Hamilton in July. He is composing music for Disney's Moana and will be  starring in a sequel to Mary Poppins opposite Emily Blunt as the titular character. 
"You guys are going to be so sick of me in this part, because I plan to out-Ted Neeley Ted Neeley," the 36-year-old actor told ET in June with regard to leaving Hamilton, making reference to Neeley's long-running role in Jesus Christ Superstar. "I've written a part I can't age out of, so even if I take a break, I'll always come back."
"This is not the end of anything," he added. "I don't know when I'm leaving yet, but I think that I built a house I can come back to any time I want, so I’m really excited about that."
