Tina Fey is one step closer to joining the "Saturday Night Live" Five-Timers Club.

The former "SNL" head writer will head back to studio 8H to host the show's 39th season premiere on Sept. 28. The musical guest will be the Grammy-winning band Arcade Fire, NBC announced on Sept. 9. It will mark Fey's fourth time as host since she left the show in 2006 to work on "30 Rock."

In addition to Fey, NBC also announced that Miley Cyrus will be pulling double duty for the Oct. 5 episode as both the host and the musical guest. It will be the second time Cyrus has hosted the show. She first hosted the show in March 2011 with musical guests The Strokes.

Bruce Willis is set to host the Oct. 12 show with musical guest Katy Perry. The actor's first (and last) turn as host was for the Sept. 30, 1989, episode with musical guest Neil Young.
