'SNL' alum Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig star in 'The Skeleton Twins.'
Mark your calendars, little grasshoppers: Oct. 11 is going to be a great day.

That’s because Bill Hader is returning to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Hozier, NBC announced Wednesday.

Hader of course will be promoting his new film The Skeleton Twins, which stars fellow SNL alum Kristen Wiig. (Please have the latter on the same episode, Lorne Michaels. Please).

Hader, who brought us dear Stefon and impersonations of Julian Assange and Clint Eastwood, among other things during his tenure, filmed his last SNL as a regular player in May 2013 for the season 38 finale.

The Skeleton Twins is in theaters now.

The 40th season of Saturday Night Live kicks off Sept. 27, with host Chris Pratt and music from Ariana Grande.
