Emma Thompson and Paul Rudd are booked to host the final two episodes of this “Saturday Night Live” season, the show announced Wednesday by way of Twitter.
The May 11 episode will mark Thompson’s “SNL” debut (how can this be?!), while the May 18 finale will be Rudd’s fourth time at the helm of the iconic sketch comedy series.
Now for the jams: The Jonas Brothers serve as musical guests on Thompson’s episode, while DJ Khaled will fill the final slot for SNL’s 44th season.
NBC previously announced former “SNL” cast member Adam Sandler and Shawn Mendes will be hosting and performing on the May 4 show, the first time in those roles for both.
The announcement follows a surprising dud episode last weekend, when Emma Stone hosted with Korean super group BTS. Adoring fans of the K-pop boy group camped out for days to score tickets, but the show’s ratings were the lowest of the season, Deadline reported.
