Though the news leaked over the weekend, NBC has now officially confirmed it: Actress, comedian, and fan favorite host Melissa McCarthy will return to host SNL for a third time on Feb. 1. This will mark McCarthy’s third visit to SNL in four years; the Mike and Molly star hosted previously in 2011 and 2013. Her hosting stint comes months before McCarthy returns to the big screen in a pair of high-profile projects: St. Vincent de Van Nuys, which costars Bill Murray (opening April 11), and Tammy (opening July 2), which McCarthy co-wrote with her husband Ben Falcone. (Falcone directed the film as well.)

McCarthy will appear on SNL with musical guest Imagine Dragons. The alt-rock band, which will be making its SNL debut, is up for Record of the Year and Best Rock Performance at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, which take place Jan. 26. Imagine Dragons will perform at the ceremony as well.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Micheals.
