Don’t call it a comeback! Tracy Morgan is returning to SNL this fall as a host.
Executive producer Lorne Michaels made the announcement Monday, and the star would take the stage Oct. 17.
This will be his first appearance on the show since the tragic car accident that left him critically injured and his friend James “Jimmy Mack” McNair dead.
The 46-year-old spent seven years as a cast member on the show and is thrilled to be headed back. He took to Twitter to share the news.
Stoked to be going home…#SNL
