Saturday Night Live is kicking off its 43rd season with some serious star power.

Ryan Gosling will reportedly host the upcoming premiere of the long-running comedy show with some help from musical guest JAY-Z. Yeah, we definitely don't want to miss that!

The announcement was made during Thursday night's episode of Weekend Update: Summer Edition, and later confirmed on SNL's Twitter account. "Season 43 premieres on September 30 with @RyanGosling and JAY-Z!" the tweet proclaimed alongside a bulletin-board photo.

Gosling hosted once before in 2015, while JAY-Z has performed on the show's iconic stage three times over the course of his career, per Deadline.

The premiere comes at a busy time for both men. Gosling, 36, stars in Blade Runner 2049, which is scheduled to open on Oct. 6, just a few days after the SNL premiere. HOVA, who released his latest album, 4:44, this summer, also welcomed twins, Rumi and Sir, with his wife, Beyoncé, in June.
