Wiig will host the next-to-last episode of “SNL” this season on May 11, almost a year after her last episode as a regular (she made a cameo in the Martin Short-Paul McCartney episode in December). Vampire Weekend will be the musical guest.
“SNL” previously announced that Zach Galifianakis will host on May 4 with musical guest Of Monsters and Men.
Wiig joins a long list of former “SNL” cast members who have returned to host the show. The list of people who hosted in the first year after they left is shorter: Chevy Chase, Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy.
