Saturday Night Live announced two more hosts scheduled to take the stage in Studio 8H this month. All three hosts this month will be making their SNL debuts.

Fans already knew that Succession star Kieran Culkin is set to host this week on November 6. It comes 30 years after his older brother Macaulay Culkin hosted.

Now we know who will be Culkin’s successors as hosts. Jonathan Majors will host on November 13. He’ll be followed by Simu Liu on November 20.

Majors received critical praise for his role in Lovecraft Country. Next, he stars alongside past SNL hosts Idris Elba and Regina King in the film The Harder They Fall. Then, he’ll return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. MCU fans will recall they’ve already seen Majors as He Who Remains in the Disney+ series Loki.

The MCU connection continues with Simu Liu. He’s coming off Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Saturday Night Live also announced November’s musical guests

Saturday Night Live sounded like it would be in a tough spot this week when it came to the musical guest. Ed Sheeran announced he tested positive for COVID-19 and entered quarantine. Reports indicated SNL then scrambled to find a replacement.

However, it looks like the singer will be ready to go on November 6. SNL made a point to list him as the musical guest to go along with host Kieran Culkin.

Jonathan Majors will be supported by musical guest Taylor Swift. Swift has delighted fans with re-releases of all her albums over the past year. She’s been a host and a musical guest in the past, so Swift is certainly no stranger to Studio 8h.

Liu will be paired with Saweetie. The rapper is still planning to release her album Pretty Bitch Music, supported by singles like “Fast (Motion)” and “Best Friend.”
