The Duke of Hastings is making his way to Studio 8H.

"Saturday Night Live" confirmed Saturday night that Regé-Jean Page, known as Duke Simon Basset of Netflix's hit series "Bridgerton," will host next week.

He'll be joined by rapper Bad Bunny (real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio), a five-time Grammy nominee who joined Jennifer Lopez and Shakira during the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show and made history in December with his album "El Ultimo Tour del Mundo," which became the first all-Spanish album to hit No. 1 in Billboard.

Both stars will be making their "SNL" debuts.

The Shonda Rhimes-produced Regency-era drama made waves when it debuted in December and has since racked up several awards nominations, including best male actor in a drama series for Page from the Screen Actors Guild Awards and NAACP Image Awards.

Page played a duke adamantly opposed to marriage who gets entangled in debutant Daphne Bridgerton's (Phoebe Dynevor) love life. Netflix announced last month that the series would return for a second season.

Fans of Page and Bad Bunny rejoiced online following the announcement.

"omgg rege-jean page and bad bunny on the same day i'm not well," one fan wrote on Twitter.

"I might actually watch snl for once in my life," another wrote.

"Oh wow," commented Page's co-star Ben Miller, who plays Lord Featherington. "This is a moment."
