Bill Murray, Sarah Silverman and Chris Pratt will be the first three hosts on NBC’s Saturday Night Live 40th season. Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, and Hozier will be the accompanying musical guests, the show announced on Twitter Wednesday morning.

The news was met officially announced by the network until 11 a.m., but several NBC affiliates published the news earlier before quickly taking the announcements down.

The season premiere of SNL will air on Sept. 27; all three hosts are SNL alumni in one way or another. Bill Murray was a cast member for three seasons between 1977 to 1980. He has hosted the show five times, with his last appearance in 1999.

Murray’s latest project, the film “St. Vincent,” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend. In an interview with the Toronto Star he mentioned that his comedy classic “Ghostbusters” film might be remade with an all-female cast. While he is not involved in the film, he made suggestions on which comics he thinks would be a good fit.  Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone were the names he threw out, when he offered his casual support.

“I’m fine with it,” Murray told the Toronto Star. “I would go to that movie, and they’d probably have better outfits, too.”

Sarah Silverman had a brief stint on SNL as a writer and featured player during the 1993-1994 season. She was fired after one season, during which just one of her sketches made it past dress rehearsal -- only for it to be killed before the live show (which is fairly common).

Bob Odenkirk, an SNL writer for several years, told the New Yorker in a 2005 profile piece on the female comic why he thought Silverman’s run on SNL was short-lived. “She can play a character but she doesn’t disappear into the character—she makes the character her,” he said.

While Silverman has hosted the MTV Movie Awards, she has yet to return to her roots and host SNL. Silverman recently won an Emmy Award for Best Writing for a Variety Show for her HBO comedy special “Sarah Silverman: We are Miracles.” Although her marijuana-filled e-cigarette on the red carpet created more buzz than her award win.

Chris Pratt, who stars on the NBC show “Parks and Recreation,” has never hosted SNL either. Dubbed the “breakout star of the summer” for his role in the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Vulture had already pegged him as a potential host in its list of predictions.

As for the musical guests, Ariana Grande has been at the top of the charts all summer. Despite a recent spat with the Australian press during a promotional visit for her album, “My Everything,” she will be performing with Iggy Azalea on the SNL premiere on Sept. 27.

Maroon 5 has performed on SNL before – in 2004, 2007, 2011 and 2012. Their latest appearance will most likely promote their new album, “V.”

Hozier is the rookie of the pack. His breakout single, “Take Me To Church” --  made famous on YouTube and Reddit -- was featured on the HBO’s “The Leftovers” last season. In June, the Irish singer tweeted his debut album will be released on Sept. 22.
