SNL is ready to kick off the new year with an all-new slate of hosts.

John Krasinski, Dan Levy and Regina King will serve as the first three hosts of the long-running sketch show in 2021, beginning the last Sunday in January.

In their usual style, SNL made the big reveal on index cards which were mocked up with the names of the hosts, the musical acts and the dates and then shared to Twitter.

‘Hello, 2021,’ the official SNL account tweeted on Friday.

The Office and Jack Ryan star John Krasinski, 41, will host the first show of the year on January 30th. Rapper Machine Gun Kelly will perform.

Krasinksi had been set to host SNL in March of last year right as the pandemic first hit and shuttered productions, thereby canceling his gig. 

‘Aaaaaand cue the pinching myself. #SNL,’ the actor said on social media about getting a second chance at hosting the series.
