Melissa McCarthy to host "Saturday Night Live" for the second time

Actress Melissa McCarthy arrives for the 85th Academy Awards on Feb. 24, 2013, in Hollywood, Calif. Getty

Watch out, Jason Sudeikis -- Arlene is coming back.

Melissa McCarthy is returning to host "Saturday Night Live" on April 6, according to Us Weekly.

The Oscar-nominated actress, 42, drew laughs and positive reviews in 2011 when she hosted the NBC late-night sketch show for the first time. One of her most memorable bits from that night came when she played the overly-forward Arlene, who refused to take no for an answer from her co-worker (played by Sudeikis).

Among her recent successes, McCarthy's latest film "Identity Thief" recently topped $100 million at the U.S. box office.

Her CBS sitcom, "Mike and Molly," for which she won a best actress Emmy in 2011, is now in its third season.
