Emily Blunt Lin Manuel Miranda"Saturday Night Live" is continuing its streak of first-time hosts.

The late night sketch show's 42nd season debuts this weekend with "Suicide Squad" actress Margot Robbie as host. And now, "SNL" is bringing on Emily Blunt and "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda for the next two episodes. Miranda will step onto Studio 8H on October 8 with musical guest Twenty One Pilots, while the "Girl on the Train" star takes the stage on October 15.

Season 42 sees the addition of three new cast members — Mikey Day, Alex Moffat and Melissa Villaseñor — after the departure of veterans Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah.

It's a funny coincidence that Miranda and Blunt are hosting "SNL" back-to-back, since they will be co-starring in the upcoming sequel to "Mary Poppins."
