Sandra Oh‘s hot streak continues with news that she’s due to make her Saturday Night Live debut later this month.
The Killing Eve actress will host the iconic variety show on March 30, joined by an exciting musical guest: Tame Impala, the psychedelic rock project conceived by Australian multi-instrumentalist (and Lady Gaga collaborator) Kevin Parker.

Oh has already showed off impeccable comic timing once this year. Her SNL hosting gig comes after she pretty much stole the show co-hosting January’s Golden Globe Awards alongside Andy Samberg.
On the night, Oh won the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her performance as Eve Polastri in Killing Eve. She’s since won a SAG award and a Critics’ Choice award for the role, too – see what we mean about that hot streak?
She’ll make her SNL debut just over a week before season two of Killing Eve premieres on BBC America on Sunday, April 7.
The new season picks up “exactly 30 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale”, Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Entertainment Networks, has said, with Jodie Comer‘s Villanelle having disappeared and Oh’s Eve left reeling.
Joining Oh, Comer and fellow returning cast member Fiona Shaw are new additions Nina Sosanya (Good Omens), Edward Bluemel (A Discovery of Witches), Julian Barratt (Mindhorn), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Indian Summers), and Shannon Tarbet (Genius). Beyond that, we’ll have to tune in to the season premiere to find out more!
