Tom Hanks and Emily Blunt to Host Saturday Night Live

Plus: Lady Gaga's back!

Sadie Gennis

Emily Blunt will make her Saturday Night Live debut on Oct. 15, NBC announced Friday.

The Girl on the Train star will host the episode, which will feature fourth-time musical guest Bruno Mars.

The following week, Tom Hanks will host SNL for the ninth time with musical guest Lady Gaga. The Oct. 22 episode will mark her third time performing on the series.

Last week, Saturday Night Live's 42nd season premiere, hosted by Margot Robbie, was watched by 11.8 million people, making it the most-watched premiere since Steve Martin hosted in 1994. And this Saturday, Lin-Manuel Miranda will host a much-anticipated episode with musical guest Twenty One Pilots.

So let's see if Blunt and Hanks can keep up the good momentum!
