Miranda recently wrapped his Broadway run as composer, lyricist and performer in the musical sensation and multi-Tony winner Hamilton.
Joining Miranda will be musical guest Twenty One Pilots, also in their SNL hosting debut. The duo (Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun) recently made history becoming the first alternative group ever with two simultaneous singles in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 — “Ride,” from their multi-platinum studio album “Blurryface,” and “Heathens,” from “Suicide Squad: The Album.”
SNL is adding three new featured players for the upcoming season: improv performer Alex Moffat and America’s Got Talent finalist Melissa Villaseñor, as well as Mikey Day, who has been a writer on the show since 2013.
SNL returns October 1 with host Margot Robbie and musical guest The Weeknd.
