Kim will be joined by the show’s returning cast of players, which includes the likes of Pete Davidson, Heidi Gardner, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson and Melissa Villasenor.
The news of Kim’s SNL booking comes after the long-running comedy show lost one of its most popular stars, after the likes of Seth Rogen and Jim Carrey paid tribute to Norm Macdonald after he died aged 61.
The reality star, 40, turned heads on the red carpet thanks to her outfit, which saw her encased in a head to toe black look which even covered her face, leaving just her long ponytail visible.
Saturday Night Live comes to NBC in October.
