It’s been a long year since Kristen Wiig ditched “Saturday Night Live” for Hollywood movie stardom, but at long last she’s finally coming back! The star is returning this weekend to bring the funny back … er … host the show that made her famous.

During her seven seasons, she was responsible for some of “SNL’s” most memorable characters, a few of which she will hopefully be resurrecting during her guest appearance, as the episode’s promos hint.

We’ll have to wait until Saturday night to see which oldies but goodies are resurrected, but fingers crossed these gems are allowed to shine again.
