NEW YORK —

A year after leaving "Saturday Night Live," Kristen Wiig is coming back to host the show.

NBC announced Friday that Wiig will host the May 11 episode. For six seasons, Wiig was one of the most popular cast members on the show before exiting in an emotional send-off last May.

Vampire Weekend will perform as musical guest.

The network also announced that the season finale on May 18 will be hosted by Ben Affleck, with Kanye West as the musical guest. It's Affleck's fifth stint as host.

"Saturday Night Live" returns May 4 with Zach Galifianakis hosting.
