NBC has announced the final three hosts and musical guests for the 40th season of Saturday Night Live.

The already revealed Scarlett Johansson will host on May 2, with newly announced musical guest Wiz Khalifa. Johansson is the latest Avenger to host the show and will appear the day after Avengers: Age of Ultron likely opens huge at the box office.

She’ll be followed a week later by Reese Witherspoon, who stars in Hot Pursuit with Sofia Vergara opening May 8. Witherspoon’s musical guest is Florence + the Machine.

And then the season concludes with Louis C.K. hosting on May 16. The fifth season of Louie premiered on April 9, and the comedian will also have a stand-up special, Live at the Comedy Store, debut on May 28. C.K. will be joined by musical guest Rihanna, who is no stranger to SNL (though unless Andy Samberg is in town, don’t count on a “Shy Ronnie 3” this time around.)
