We finally have a premiere date and host lineup for season 41 of SNL, and it’s pretty great. NBC revealed on Twitter today that its 41st season will kick off on October 3rd with host Miley Cyrus, followed by Amy Schumer on October 10th and former cast member Tracy Morgan on October 17th. It will make Cyrus’s third time as host, Morgan’s second time since 2009, and Schumer’s hosting debut.
Morgan’s hosting stint will take place almost a year and a half after the 2014 car crash that killed his friend James McNair and left Morgan hospitalized. He appeared on the Today show in June to give his fans reassurance that he’d return to comedy soon: “I love comedy. I’ll never stop loving her. I love comedy and I can’t wait to get back to her, but my goal right now is just to heal and get better cause I’m not 100% yet. And when I’m there you’ll know it. I’ll get back to making you laugh, I promise you.”
