Tina Fey has been officially booked to host the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.” It will be her fourth time hosting the NBC late night comedy show after her departure as a cast member in 2006. Musical guests Arcade Fire will join her.

Also booked to host the show this upcoming 39th season is Miley Cyrus (also musical guest) in the second episode. Cyrus comes as a great choice in light of her recent humiliating yet hysterical VMA’s performance and expect some outrageous sketches that will poke fun at her and partner-in-crime Robin Thicke.

Bruce Willis and Katy Perry are also set for the third episode as host and musical guest, respectively. This will be Willis’ second time hosting the show.

The announcements of the first three episodes’ hosts and musical guests arrive without an official announcement of the main feature players. Veterans Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Jason Sudekis have left the show, and Seth Meyers will remain as the Weekend Update anchor until halfway through the season, after which he will take on Jay Leno’s role as the new host on NBC’s “Late Night.”

The 39th season will premiere on Saturday, September, 28.
