Saturday Night Liveis returning for season 47, and bringing a slew of first-time hosts to Studio 8H. The celebrated sketch series took to social media on Wednesday to announce the first four hosts for the show's upcoming season.
Loki star Owen Wilson has been tapped to host the season 47 premiere on Oct. 2, and will be joined by musical guest Kacey Musgraves.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian West will lead the Oct. 9 show, where she will be joined by frequent musical guest and one-time host Halsey. Then, Oscar winner Rami Malek will make his SNL debut hosting the Oct. 16 episode, along with musical guest Young Thug.
"I'm not gonna tell you much, only because we haven't announced who's hosting and who the first four are, but I don't think anybody will be heartbroken," Michaels said of the show's lineup. "I think people will be happy with what we have."
He also teased Sudeikis' return to the show, sharing, "He'll be coming back soon. I'm very happy about that."
Sudeikis -- who took home two Emmys on Sunday for his work on Ted Lasso -- joined SNL as a featured player in 2005, and was a key part of the cast until his departure in 2013.
