John Krasinski, Dan Levy, Regina King to host SNL when show returns
Saturday Night Live is kicking off the new year with five consecutive shows starting Jan. 30.
The NBC late-night staple released its host and musical guest lineup for the first three shows of the five: John Krasinski and Machine Gun Kelly (Jan. 30), Dan Levy and Phoebe Bridgers (Feb. 6), and Regina King and Nathaniel Rateliff (Feb. 13).
This will mark the SNL hosting/musical guest debut for all three of the above hosts and musical guests. Krasinski was previously set to host the show for the first time last March when the Covid-19 pandemic caused an industry shutdown.
Krasinski (The Office) will be on hand to promote his long-delayed horror thriller A Quiet Place Part II while Levy is is the co-creator and costar of Netflix's acclaimed Schitt's Creek. King is coming off her Emmy-winning turn in HBO's Watchmen.
Machine Gun Kelly will promote his newest album, Tickets to My Downfall. Phoebe Bridgers is currently nominated for four Grammys. Nathaniel Rateliff is promoting his latest single, "Redemption," written for the film Palmer.
SNL will continue with new shows on Feb. 20 and Feb. 27 with hosts and musical guests that are not yet announced.
