Anna Kendrick, Seth Rogen to host 'Saturday Night Live'

It’s been awhile since NBC aired three new SNL episodes in a row — but the network announced Wednesday that after its current hiatus, the sketch show will return with a vengeance.

On March 29, previously announced host Louis C.K. will return to helm the show a second time. He’ll be joined by just-divulged musical guest Sam Smith, an English singer/songwriter whose debut album, In the Lonely Hour, will be released in the U.S. on June 17.

April 5 will see an SNL debut: Oscar nominee (and Pitch Perfect star) Anna Kendrick will host the show for the first time, with musical guest Pharrell Williams (making his first solo appearance on the show). Kendrick has several films coming out later this year, included the highly anticipated musicals The Last Five Years and Into the Woods. Williams, whose Oscar-nominated tune “Happy” is still topping the charts, released his last album, G I R L, earlier this month.

Finally, Seth Rogen will return to host for a third time April 12, with musical guest Ed Sheeran. Rogen’s comedy Neighbors, which costars Zac Efron and Rose Byrne, hits theaters May 9. Taylor Swift pal Sheeran is making his debut as musical guest; he plans to premiere the first single from his second album on SNL.

Louis C.K. to host 'Saturday Night Live' again

C.K. will have his second stint as host March 29, after the program takes a two-week hiatus. No musical guest has been announced yet — unless C.K., who created, writes, directs, edits, produces, and stars in the acclaimed FX series Louie, is somehow preparing to provide the episode’s music as well. The next season of Louie premieres on FX this May.
