While we wish it was for good, we'll take one night.

Kristen Wiig, who was a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" for seven years, before she departed in 2012, is returning on May 11 to host alongside musical guest Vampire Weekend.

Wiig, who has since had a successful movie career, was one of the most popular and heavily-featured members of "SNL" towards the end of her run on the sketch-comedy show, so she should make a fabulous first-time host -- and may even give Tina Fey a run for her money (though let's face it, no one can really out-funny Fey).

NBC also announce future hosts and musical acts, including "The Hangover Part III" star Zach Galifianakis on May 4, with band Of Monsters and Men, and Ben Affleck closing out the season on May 18 alongside musical guest Kanye West.

So, NBC is ending the season on a high note -- we couldn't ask for a better lineup of guests.

Tell us: Who are you most excited to see on "SNL" in the next three weeks?
