THE ROCK, HAS COME BACK ...
TO SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
Dwayne Johnson will be hosting the season finale of SNL on May 20th, returning to the show for the first time since the spring of 2015.
He posted this to his Instagram yesterday.
BREAKING: LIVE FROM NEW YORK... Honored to host the Season Finale of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and join their illustrious, exclusive and highly sexy 5X Host Club! I started my career 20yrs ago in NYC and from that vey first night, the city embraced me as a son. This SNL is special. I'm coming home to make history and have a KILLER show with the brilliant SNL cast and production team (I may or may not get slightly drunk 3 out of the 7 days I'm there). #SNL #SeasonFinale #MakingHistory #5xHostClub #NYC MAY 20th
As he mentions, Johnson will be joining the auspicious "5-Timers Club," the list of 17 (now 18) performers who have hosted the SNL at least 5 times in the show's 42 year history.
Fellow WWE Superstar John Cena hosted the show earlier this season and received mostly positive reviews.
SNL will broadcast this season's final four episodes live in Mountain and Pacific Time zones at the same time as Eastern and Central time zones for the first time ever.
