First <i>SNL</i> Episode of 2019 to Feature Greta Van Fleet, Rachel Brosnahan

The first Saturday Night Live episode of 2019 is going to be one to remember. As announced via the NBC sketch-comedy institution’s Twitter account Monday afternoon, its Jan. 19 episode will feature appearances from musical guests Greta Van Fleet and host Rachel Brosnahan, both of whom will be making their SNL debuts.

Brosnahan is fresh off a second Golden Globe win for her work on Amazon Studios’ acclaimed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, in which she plays the eponymous comedienne. It’s her second consecutive year taking home the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy in recognition of her turn as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, which also won her an Emmy in 2018. Prior to breaking big with Mrs. Maisel, Brosnahan was best known for supporting TV roles in Netflix’s House of Cards and NBC’s The Blacklist.

Greta Van Fleet—the Grammy-nominated Michigan rock ‘n’ rollers who have been the subject of widespread adulation and derision alike due to their uncannily Led Zeppelin-esque sound—released their debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army in October. The quartet, comprising twin brothers Josh and Jake Kizka, younger brother Sam Kizka and longtime family friend Danny Wagner, will embark on a 2019 world tour in support of their chart-topping debut.

SNL returns to continue its 44th season on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
