Tina Fey is returning to "Saturday Night Live" on Sept. 28 to host the show's season premiere, NBC announced Monday.

This will be Fey's fourth time hosting "SNL" -- she did it previously in 2008, 2010 and 2011. (The "30 Rock" star left the sketch comedy series in 2006.)

Arcade Fire will be the musical guest during that premiere episode.

The following week, on Oct. 5, Miley Cyrus will take over the "SNL" studio as both host and performer. And Bruce Willis host the Oct. 12 episode, with Katy Perry as that night's musical guest.

The 39th season of "SNL" will get under way with a number of casting changes -- Fred ArmisenJason Sudeikis and Bill Hader have all departed, and Seth Meyers will leave the show in December, according to Variety, in advance of his takeover as host of NBC's "Late Night."
