kristen wiig hosting snl gi Kristen Wiig returns to 'Saturday Night Live' as host in MayFormer “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kristen Wiig will return to Studio 8H in May for her first time as host.

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.

The season finale on May 18 will feature host Ben Affleck — who will join the Five-Timers Club — and musical guest Kanye West, also making his fifth appearance on the show.

“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
