Saturday Night Live: Daniel Kaluuya, Carey Mulligan Hosting & More

Even while Nick Jonas was still holding down the double-duty of hosting and performing as the musical guest at the end of February, NBC's Saturday Night Live was already looking to the future, announcing that SNL alum and one of the funniest people walking the planet Maya Rudolph would be hosting on March 27 when the long-running sketch comedy series returns, with Jack Harlow joining as the musical guest. Now we've learned who's set to take the baton after; with April 3 seeing Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah) hosting with St. Vincent as musical guest, and April 10 seeing Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) hosting and Kid Cudi performing.

Che and Jost serve as head writers, with Bryan Tucker serving as senior writer.
