This will be Henson’s first time hosting the show, and she expressed her excitement on Instagram:

"DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!!!!!! #Believe #Faith #HardWorkPaysOff,” Henson posted.

Last month SNL parodied Empire, so it’ll be interesting to see if Henson’s character Cookie gets the SNL treatment again.
