Harington's hosting duties come ahead of the much anticipated 14 April premiere of the HBO fantasy drama's final season. Bareilles' new album Amidst the Chaos, which includes the single 'Armor', will also drop a day before the episode will be broadcast, reports Variety.

The Favourite star Emma Stone will emcee the 13 April episode, with popular South Korean boy band BTS attached to perform. This will be Stone's fourth stint at the SNL. 

The late-night stand-up show had previously announced that Killing Eve star Sandra Oh is set to host the 30 March episode, to be joined by Australian music group Tame Impala.
