NBC’s Saturday Night Live will wrap up its 41st season with three new shows airing in May 2016. The month will kick off with Oscar winner Brie Larson (Room) tackling hosting duties for the first time with the May 7th episode. Larson recently wrapped up work on Kong: Skull Island directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and co-starring Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson. Alicia Keys will be returning to the SNL stage as musical guest for the May 7th episode and will be performing her new single “In Common” off of her new album. The 15-time Grammy winner will be back on NBC in a few months as one of the new coaches on The Voice.

The May 14th SNL episode will feature the return of Drake, handling hosting and musical guest duties for the second time. Views, his fourth studio album, was just released on April 29th.

The season finale of SNL will be hosted by former cast member Fred Armisen. After leaving SNL Armisen’s been keeping busy with Portlandia and Documentary Now, co-starring fellow SNL alum Bill Hader. First-time musical guest Courtney Barnett will join Armisen on the May 21st episode. Barnett received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist for her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.
