NBC announced on Friday that comedian and actor Adam Sandler will host “Saturday Night Live” for the very first time in his career.

The date of his appearance will be May 4, and Sandler will be joined by musical guest Shawn Mendes.

It’s been a rather stunning 25 years since Sandler has appeared on “SNL” — and many fans have eagerly anticipated a return.

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