adam sandler saturday night live return snl

Saturday Night Live helped Adam Sandler launch his career back in the ’90s. Now, the veteran actor is returning to the show that turned him into a household name to host SNL for the first time ever.

“We are happy to welcome Adam back to SNL in what is sure to be a special night,” said executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Sandler became a part of the Saturday Night Live family in 1990 when he was brought on as a writer. From there, he went on to join the cast from 1991 to 1995, starring as a number of iconic characters such as Opera Man, Lucy Brawn, Hank Gelfand, and Cajun Man, just to name a few.

Sandler will be hosting SNL this week on May 4, as Shawn Mendes makes his second appearance as a musical guest. Will you be watching?

Not NYC, not LA.
