Saturday Night Live is kicking off its 43rd season on September 30 with Ryan Gosling, who is a timely host thanks to Blade Runner 2049 also coming this fall, but one problem with the early episodes in an SNL season is that most of the big movies of the summer have already come and gone. So, to celebrate a couple movies that everybody liked from these last few months (or maybe to plug their DVDs), SNL will follow Gosling’s episode with an episode hosted by Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot and then one hosted by The Big Sick star Kumail Nanjiani.


As noted in the above tweet that Nanjiani shared, Gadot’s episode will air on October 7 with musical guest Sam Smith, and Nanjiani’s will air on October 14 with musical guest Pink.
