Gal Gadot will host Saturday Night Live on Oct. 7, NBC confirmed Thursday afternoon.

The Wonder Woman star had been rumored to be under consideration for hosting duties after the film's incredible success over the summer. To top it off, she'll be joined by musical guest Sam Smith, who is back with his new single "Too Good at Goodbyes," the first from his upcoming sophomore album.

A week later on Oct. 14, comedian Kumail Nanjiani, known as one of the stars of HBO's Silicon Valley and most recently in the film The Big Sick, will take the hosting reins with musical guest Pink.

The news comes a week ahead of SNL's season 43 premiere on Sept. 30, with host Ryan Gosling and Jay-Z as the musical guest.

SNL confirmed earlier this week its entire new season will be airing coast-to-coast rather than on tape-delay for the Mountain and Pacific time zones. The show had tested the all-live airings with the final three episodes last season.
