Previously the “Avengers” star hosted the show in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2015.
“SNL” has spent the duration of their current season mocking president Donald Trump and his administration, something that has led to a huge rating boost of the show in its 42nd season, according to the Huffington Post.
The ratings are the highest they have been in 22 years, giving the show numbers they haven’t seen since the 1994-1995 season, when people like Mike Myers were part of the cast.
NBC also announced that Octavia Spencer will host on March 4 alongside musical guest Father John Misty.
