Chris Rock is slated to host the Oct. 3 season premiere of "Saturday Night Live," featuring musical guest Megan Thee Stallion, the sketch series announced in a tweet Thursday.

The comedian and "SNL" alumnus previously emceed in 1996 and 2014, and he has made various cameo appearances on the show over the years, NBC News reports. He was part of the lineup from 1990 to 1993.

"SNL" was forced to halt production in March as the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the U.S. The show closed out its previous season with three remotely-produced episodes.

The show will return to live broadcasts with the 46th season premiere, although it was not immediately clear if there will be a live audience inside Studio 8H at NBC's Rockefeller Plaza headquarters.
