Even with Adele already well underway hosting tonight NBC's Saturday Night Live and H.E.R. just taking the stage for what sounds like an amazingly soulful performance, it's never too early to start looking ahead to the next live episode. With a newly-announced new episode happening the Saturday after the U.S. presidential election (November 7), we learned during tonight's broadcast that John Mulaney will be hosting the Halloween edition and The Strokes providing the sound all throughout Studio 8H.
Here's a look at the original tweet sent out during Saturday night's broadcast:
