Morgan's return to Studio 8H is a big deal for the 46-year-old comedian. He tweeted, "Stoked to be going home."

The former "SNL" cast member has made only a few public appearances since the 2014 car accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury, broken leg and broken ribs.

Musical guests have not yet been announced, but maybe Cyrus will pull double duty as host and musical guest for the season premiere.
