As another lackluster season of Saturday Night Live limps to a close, the sketch show took to Twitter to announce the hosts for its final three episodes of 2018. Claire Foy, the Crown actress who’s currently drawing Oscar buzz for her turn in Damien Chazelle’s First Man, will take the reins this Saturday, with brawny Aquaman Jason Momoa and Matt Damon lording over the two following weeks. This marks Foy and Momoa’s debut outings on the show, and a second turn for Damon, who first hosted back in 2002. Damon’s return is relatively fresh, however, as the actor recently made a guest appearance as creepy Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Anderson Paak, who recently dropped his anticipated Oxnard, will provide the tunes on Foy’s episode. Mumford & Sons will likely play some tunes from this month’s Delta when they guest on Momoa’s episode. Damon, meanwhile, will be joined by Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, who, Variety reports, premiere their latest song from Ronson’s album. Expect Cyrus, who has quite the history with the show, to pop into a sketch or two.
