We’ve learned who will be hosting Saturday Night Live for its season finale, and… who is this jabrony? Just kidding, it’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson will host SNL for the fifth time when SNL wraps up its 42nd season on May 20th. The show has been on a roll this year, fueled largely by the endless source of both comedy and tyranny, President Donald Trump, and we can’t think of a better way to end the season than with The Great One himself.
There’s just six more episodes to go this season. Louis CK is hosting the next one when the show returns on April 8, followed by Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy, and then The Rock. Johnson posted the following to Instagram in celebration of the news:
BREAKING: LIVE FROM NEW YORK… Honored to host the Season Finale of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and join their illustrious, exclusive and highly sexy 5X Host Club! I started my career 20yrs ago in NYC and from that vey first night, the city embraced me as a son. This SNL is special. I'm coming home to make history and have a KILLER show with the brilliant SNL cast and production team (I may or may not get slightly drunk 3 out of the 7 days I'm there). #SNL #SeasonFinale #MakingHistory #5xHostClub #NYC MAY 20th ✊🏾
