Gal Gadot will host an episode of Saturday Night Live during the show’s upcoming season, marking the first time the Israeli actress will host the long-running late night program.

The episode, which will air October 7, will feature English singer Sam Smith as the musical guest, according to Variety.

The episode will be the second of the show’s 43rd season, which starts on September 30.

The choice of Gadot to host an episode comes after “Wonder Woman,” in which the Israeli actress played the lead role, was a box office smash this summer, grossing over $800 million worldwide.

In light of the movie’s success, Gadot has signed up to star in a sequel.

She will also play the character of Wonder Woman in “Justice League,” which is slated to hit theaters in November.
