Former "Saturday Night Live" regular Maya Rudolph is set to return to Studio 8H, to make her debut as a host on the show. The comedienne, who is currently starring on NBC's "Up All Night", is going to lead a February 18 installment with Sleigh Bells as a musical guest.

Since retiring from "SNL" in 2007, Rudolph has maintained a semi-regular appearance on the variety show. The Verona de Tessant of "Away We Go" was recently featured in a Steve Buscemi-hosted episode which aired in December, portraying Whitney Houston in a sketch.

An upcoming episode of the NBC show, meanwhile, will feature Zooey Deschanel as a host. A promo video for the February 11 outing has been unleashed, featuring the "New Girl" beauty showing her quirky and funny sides in various sketches.
