"Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot is set to host "Saturday Night Live" on Oct. 7, NBC announced Thursday. Kumail Nanjiani of "The Big Sick" also will host during the show's upcoming 43rd season.

The musical guest during Gadot's show will be Sam Smith, while Nanjiani will host the Oct. 14 episode with musical guest P!nk, Reuters reported. This will mark the first time either star has hosted the long-running NBC sketch series.

"Wonder Woman" earned more than $400 million at the domestic box office, with Gadot reprising the role in the highly anticipated "Justice League," arriving in theaters Nov. 17. Nanjiani stars as Dinesh Chugtai in HBO's "Silicon Valley" and most recently wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed indie comedy "The Big Sick."

As previously announced, Ryan Gosling will host the season opener on Sept. 30 with musical guest Jay Z.

Fans on Twitter were excited both Gadot and Nanjiani will be hosting "SNL."
