Can you ever get enough of Amy Poehler?

NBC will put that question to the test this fall, as the former Saturday Night Live alum returns home to co-anchor a pair of Weekend Update Thursday night specials with Seth Meyers.

On September 17, the Poehler-ized Update will lead into the second season premiere of the comedian's sitcom, Parks and Recreation at 8:30 pm. This will be followed by the return of The Office; and the debut of the new series Community at 9:30 p.m.

(Sadly, 30 Rock doesn't come back until October 15.)

Poehler will also be behind the Weekend Update desk a week later, on September 24.
