In addition to Murphy, Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Kristen Stewart, and David Harbour have also been tapped to host during Saturday Night Live's upcoming 45th season.

NBC has yet to confirm SNL's official Season 45 cast. The Season 45 premiere will mark Eilish's first appearance on the series. She created and stars in the award-winning comedy series Fleabag, nominated for 11 Emmy Awards, and also garnered praise as the writer and showrunner of the first season of the celebrated series Killing Eve, which she continues to executive produce.

Taylor Swift is psyched to be returning to Saturday Night Live, and to be in the same show as Phoebe Waller-Bridge as well.

It's going to be a star-studded season on Saturday Night Live!

Of course, we can't forget the musical guest, who now has one of the top albums in America.

Stranger Things' David Harbour, meanwhile, will headline the October 12 show, with Camila Cabello serving as musical guest. She also stars in the upcoming film "Cats", due December 20.

Also making their hosting debut this season will be Stranger Things star David Harbour on October 12. Cabello recently released "Senorita" with Shawn Mendes, which debuted #1 on iTunes worldwide and broke Spotify's record for the biggest debut from a male/female duet in its history.

Murphy was a cast member from 1980 to 1984, starring in such landmark sketches as "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood" and as Gumby, Buckwheat and Stevie Wonder. Funnily enough, Murphy actually hosted the show for the first time in 1982 while he was still a cast member.

Murphy has been in a feud with the SNL crew since 1990 when series newbie David Spade cracked a joke about Murphy's back-to-back film flops. He was last seen on the show for a brief appearance on the 40th anniversary special, "SNL 40", in 2015.
