Bill Hader is returning to his roots.

The comedian, who can currently be seen channeling his dark side on the big screen in The Skeleton Twins, will host Saturday Night Live’s Oct. 11 show with musical guest Hozier, NBC announced today. This is Hader’s first time as a host; one can only hope he’ll tap into the deep reservoir of characters and impressions he accumulated during his eight years on the show. And, yes, fingers crossed for Stefon. (Though, can he recapture the Stefon magic as a host? And without Seth Meyers at the Update desk?)

SNL’s 40th season premieres Sept. 27 with Chris Pratt as host and Ariana Grande as musical guest.
