Saturday Night Live will say farewell to season 41 with help from a major name and a familiar face.

The NBC stalwart announced Drake and Fred Armisen as the final two hosts of the season.

Fresh off releasing his fourth studio album Views, Drake will pull double duty and be the May 14 musical guest. He did the same in January 2014, and first appeared on the show in 2011 solely as a performer.

Armisen ends the season with his first hosting gig since leaving SNL in 2013 to serve as the bandleader on Late Night with Seth Meyers. He began his tenure as a cast member in 2002. Indie rocker Courtney Barnett is set to play and make her show debut on May 21.

Newly-minted Oscar winner Brie Larson will host this weekend with musical guest Alicia Keys. SNL airs live Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
