SNL Sets Drake and Fred Armisen for Final Season 41 Episodes
We’ve wondered for a few weeks now if SNL would appoint one or two hosts to finish out Season 41 beyond Room star Brie Larson’s turn this weekend, and the Views are officially in. Not only will Drake host the penultimate hour, SNL great Fred Armisen will lead the season finale.
SNL confirmed the news just days ahead of Larson’s May 7 hosting with Alicia Keys, setting Drake to act as host and musical guest on May 14. Fred Armisen will close out Season 41 as host on May 14, joined by Courtney Barnett as musical guest.
For his part, Drake acted as musical guest in 2011, before similarly pulling double-duty as host and musical guest in 2014. Armisen acted as a cast mainstay from 2002 to 2013, and has still been known to put in the odd appearance since.
We’ll have a stronger sense of Season 41's final outings when Brie Larson takes the stage on Saturday, but which SNL May host should have fans the most excited?
