Kristen Wiig returns to 'Saturday Night Live' in new promos

Posted on

Saturday Night Live Hall-of-Famer Kristen Wiig returns home to host the show this Saturday with musical guest Vampire Weekend. If the new promos are any indication, we’re all in for a treat. Wiig’s Garth & Kat partner Fred Armisen played along for her promos, which involve everything from reliving some of Wiig’s most famous characters (Jump-roping Rhonda!) to Armisen slapping her across the face for abandoning the show.

Other revelations: Wiig and Armisen have some wicked dance moves, and it wouldn’t be the craziest thing in the world for Olivia Newton-John to make a surprise appearance this Saturday. (Is it the Christmas show already?) But the moral of Wiig’s return is simple: You never know what you got till it’s gone. Now DANCE! (But, please… don’t make her sing.)

Watch Kristen Wiig’s SNL promos below!

Tune in to NBC this Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET to catch Wiig’s much-anticipated return to the SNL studio.
