NEW YORK — Tina Fey can’t seem to stay away from 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
The funny lady, whose Emmy-nominated “30 Rock” had its series finale on NBC earlier this year and has already sold another female-centered sitcom to the network last month, will return to her old stamping grounds once again on Sept. 28, when she will host the 39th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”
Fey, of course, got her start on the long-running comedy series, on which she was the show’s first female head writer as well as the co-anchor of “Weekend Update,” first with Jimmy Fallon and later with Amy Poehler. She left “Saturday Night Live” in 2006 to develop the Emmy-winning “30 Rock” but has returned repeatedly. as a guest and host.
Fey will return to the show just as her successor, Seth Meyers, prepares to leave “SNL” to take over for Jimmy Fallon as host of “Late Night” in early 2014. The current “Weekend Update” anchor and head writer will stay on board at “SNL” until December.
Fey will be joined by musical guest Arcade Fire that night.
Other talent lined up for the fall includes host and musical guest Miley Cyrus on Oct. 5 (Taran Killam should start honing that Robin Thicke impression right about now).
Bruce Willis, will host on Oct. 12 with musical guest Katy Perry.
