After suffering a life-threatening car crash in June of 2014, Tracy Morgan will return to television by hosting Saturday Night LIve Oct. 17.

Last year, a truck driver, who had been awake for 28 hours crashed into Morgan's limo, killing James McNair and leaving Morgan with a very serious brain injury.

His recovery has been a long process and it has remained unknown when he would return to comedy, as he repeatedly said he wish to do. That is until Saturday Night Live tweeted out the first few hosts for the next season of the show Aug. 17:

The comedy community around Tracy Morgan has continued to be very supportive through his recovery. Longtime co-worker Tina Fey even said she would hold a role for him on her new Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
