Kylo Ren himself, Adam Driver, is to return to Saturday Night Live to host their season forty four premiere.
The “Star Wars” and “BlacKkKlansman” actor will be joined by musical guest Kanye West. This will be Driver’s second time hosting the long-running sketch series while it will be West’s seventh appearace since 2005.
The announcement comes just as “SNL’s” Michael Che and Colin Jost prepare to host this year’s Emmy Awards. The “Weekend Update” pair, along with Kent Sublette, also recently re-upped their deals to return as co-head writers for Season 44.
“SNL” received 21 Emmy nominations this year, with the show having already won seven of those at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend. One of those wins went to Tiffany Haddish, who won the award after hosting the show back in November. Dave Chappelle won the same award a year prior for hosting the first post-election episode in 2016.
