The appearance will coincide with the release of her next film, "Scream VI", which opens in theaters on March 10. As for The 1975, this will be the second time the band has appeared on "SNL", having previously served as the musical guest for host Larry David back in 2016.

Ahead of Jenna's episode, Woody Harrelson will host for the fifth time on February 25 to promote his latest movie, "Champions", from director Bobby Farrelly. His musical guest will be Jack White, who will make his fourth solo "SNL" appearance on the installment.

Following Woody, Kansas City Chiefs tight end and two-time Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce will take on hosting duties for the first time on March 4. He will be accompanied by musical guest Kelsea Ballerini, her first time in the musical guest spot to date.

As the titular lead of Netflix's hit show "Wednesday", Jenna seems to be one of today's most popular stars. That show has been a tremendous hit for Netflix, rising high as one of its most-watched shows in the streaming platform's history.

A second season is in the works and Jenna will return as Wednesday Addams. Created by Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, the show serves as a reboot of "The Addams Family" with the spin of following an older Wednesday as she heads off to a special university.

Jenna can also be recognized for her various big screen roles, including the "Scream" franchise, "X" and "Studio 666". She also had a notable role in the second season of the Netflix series "You", though she was unable to return for the show's fourth season because of her commitments to "Wednesday".
