Paul Rudd and Emma Thompson will close out this season of Saturday Night Live, with the latter promoting her role in Mindy Kaling’s Late Night on May 11 and the former rolling on the Avengers: Endgame train that we’re sure will still be coasting come May 18. Adam Sandler, meanwhile, will helm the May 4 episode, marking the comedian’s very first time hosting the series that made him a star.

This marks Thompson’s SNL debut, but she’ll have some old hands to guide her with musical guests Jonas Brothers, who previously serenaded 30 Rock back in 2009. Odds on Game Of Thrones’ Sophie Turner—Joe Jonas’ fiancé—showing up to be British with Thompson are high. Rudd, on the other hand, will be joined by DJ Khaled, which is perfect since one is the subject of memes and the other is a meme.
