Finally!!! We've been saying FOREVER how he needs a co-anchor!

The girl you wish you hadn't started a conversation with is now the girl who will be joining Seth Meyers behind the SNL Weekend Update desk!

After just one year on Saturday Night Live, Cecily Strong has been named to one of the most coveted spots in late night!

Seth congratulated his new desk mate over the weekend on Twitter, writing:

Proving just how hilarious she is, Cecily tweeted Seth back, saying:

With Seth scheduled to leave SNL midseason in order to take over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon, we're wondering if Cecily will be riding solo on Weekend Update from then on???

A woman has't helmed the desk alone since Jane Curtin did it in the mid '70s!

Cecily and Seth will make their co-anchoring debut together on September 28th when Tina Fey hosts SNL's 39th season premiere!

And there will be six new faces joining the cast that night as well!

AT&T spokesman Beck Bennett as well as SNL writer Mike O'Brien lead the list of new featured players, along with comedians Kyle Mooney, Noël Wells, John Milhiser and latest addition Brooks Wheelan!
