Just in time for the election, Saturday Night Live will return with three back-to-back episodes in October.

As EW previously reported, Bond himself, Daniel Craig, will host Oct. 6 along with musical guest Muse. And Christina Applegate will return as host Oct. 13 with musical guest Passion Pit, NBC announced today.

On October 20, Bruno Mars will tackle both musical and hosting duties. His sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, will be released Dec. 11.
