So it looks like SNL will get a musical (and probably historical) twist on an upcoming episode this season. The announcement on Twitter came this Wednesday morning that *Wait For It* Lin-Manuel Miranda will be hosting on October 8!
If you don’t know who Miranda is, please come out from under your rock. He’s only the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit Hamilton star and creator, nbd.

For fans who were sad to see Miranda depart after his last performance in July, we can pretty much ensure you will get at least one (if not many) Hamilton-related skits.
Taking the lead alongside musical guest Twenty One Pilots, it can be assumed that there will be at least one hip-hop piece. Do yourself a favor and watch his Alexander Hamilton rap for reference:
We know what you’re asking yourself: Will the cast appear in 18th Century garb? Will there be singing? Rapping? Historical satirical monologues in rhyme? More political tweets read in song-form? We can only hope.
