The 35th season of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” will start with a bang.

Megan Fox will host the show, while rock legends U2 will be the Sept. 26 kick-off episode’s musical guest, “SNL” comedian Bill Hader revealed to Access Hollywood on Wednesday.

Fox will be promoting her next film, the Diablo Cody-penned dark comedy “Jennifer’s Body,” out Sept. 18. U2 is in the midst of their U2 360 world tour in support of their latest album, this year’s “No Line On The Horizon.”

“Weekend Update Thursday,” the “SNL” spin-off that premiered last year, will also return for a new season, with the first episode due Sept. 17.

Although a “Saturday Night Live” publicist could not officially confirm the news when reached by Access, the publicist said an official announcement would be coming next week.
