5 Characters We Hope Kristen Wiig Reprises as 'SNL' Host

The actress only left Saturday Night Live last year, but can't wait for her return this weekend!

Kristen Wiig only left Saturday Night Live in 2012, but already it feels like it's been years since she departed the late-date series. Fortunately, she's returning to the comedy sketch show this weekend, along with musical guests Vampire Weekend.

In anticipation of that exciting event, NBC has put out a collection of promos for the episode featuring Wiig and her former cast member Fred Armisen. They're adorable, and the clips show that these two still have great chemistry even if they've spent a year apart. Watch it below!

One of the promos shows Armisen asking Wiig which characters we'll get to meet this weekend. She suggested Jump-Roping Rhonda or Annabel Johnson the Mean Veterinarian, but we hope she pulls deep from her reservoir of awesome SNL characters. Here are some requests:


Gilly is arguably Wiig's most famous character, so it seems like a given that the 39-year-old will reprise that role on May 11. What shenanigans will Gilly get up to next?

Judy Grimes

Weekend Update is an SNL staple, so it only makes sense that Judy Grimes, the (terrible) travel expert, stop by. Come on, you know we need suggestions of where to travel over Memorial Day weekend.

Surprise Party Sue

Sue can't seem to keep herself together at surprise parties, and neither can we over the idea of her potentially returning to SNL this weekend.


Garth and Kat might not be great folk musicians, but they sure are hilarious to see team up when they visit Weekend Update.

A Californian

"The Californians" is one of SNL's funniest new sketches, so hopefully Wiig's return means she'll once again participate in it. She's one of the main reasons the first one was so great.
