Tina Fey and Miley Cyrus are slated to host during this season of "Saturday Night Live," which premieres later this month.
For Fey, the hosting duties will mark her return to NBC's iconic comedy series where she worked as a writer and actress for over 10 years until 2006.
The "Admissions" star will be hosting the season 39 premiere of "SNL on Sept. 28 where musical guest Arcade Fire will join her, according to Variety. It will be the fourth time Fey has hosted "SNL."
On Oct. 5, just one week after the season opener, Cyrus will assume the hosting duties while also performing on the show as a musical guest.
The exciting 39th season of comedy will also see Bruce Willis host. The "Sin City" star will take the stage on Oct. 12 with musical guest Katy Perry.
Hosting and musical guest announcements beyond the first few weeks of "SNL" have not yet been made, and with the recent departures of actors Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader, season 39 is expected to include new faces.
Although Fey left "SNL" as a cast member, the 43-year-old actress has maintained a successful acting career on the big screen. The seven-time Emmy Award-winner also received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2010.
Furthermore, Fey and fellow "SNL" alum Amy Poehler served as hosts of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.
Alternately the next host of "SNL" following Fey, Cyrus, recently landed in hot water after an offensive performance at MTV's Video Music Awards last month.
However, the 20-year-old former Disney star is not letting the negative press slow her down, and even referred to her VMA's performance as history making.
Then, on Monday, Cyrus shocked fans again when she released the music video for her latest single "Wrecking Ball," in which she appears nude.
