Former cast member Kristen Wiig will host the April 6 episode of SNL (NBC, 11:30 pm ET), TVLine has learned, with musical guest Raye. Plus, Barbie star Ryan Gosling will host the show the following week, on April 13, with musical guest Chris Stapleton.

Wiig was an SNL cast member from 2005 to 2012, earning four Emmy nominations for her work on the NBC sketch comedy staple. She has since returned to host the show four times, most recently in December 2020. She’s set to star with Allison Janney and Laura Dern in Apple TV+’s Palm Royale, premiering March 20 on the streamer.

This will be Gosling’s third time hosting SNL, with his most recent stint coming in September 2017. In addition to his universally acclaimed role as Ken in the big-screen blockbuster Barbie — which led to a live performance of the song “I’m Just Ken” at the Oscars this week — Gosling will star opposite Emily Blunt in the upcoming movie The Fall Guy, hitting theaters on May 3.

Ahead of those two episodes, actor and stand-up comic Ramy Youssef will host the March 30 episode of SNL, with musical guest Travis Scott.
