NBC's Saturday Night Live is going for four consecutive new episodes, the network confirmed on Monday.

Its 13th episode of the current 43rd season will air on Feb. 3, with host Natalie Portman and musical guest Dua Lipa, who will be making her SNL debut that night.

It will mark the show's fourth new episode in 2018, following its Jan. 13 mid-season return with Sam Rockwell and Halsey; this past weekend's Jan. 20 episode hosted by Jessica Chastain with musical performer Troye Sivan; and this coming weekend's Jan. 27 show, which will be hosted by alum Will Ferrell with Chris Stapleton performing.

For Dua Lipa, it's just the latest in a string of good news for the fast-rising singer, who earlier today claimed for first top 10 single in the U.S., with her breakout hit "New Rules." She also leads the nominations for this year's Brit Awards, including nods for Best Album, British Breakthrough Artist and Best Single.
