*NBC can’t get enough of Maya Rudolph, and we’re all the better for it.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum is headed back to the network this spring – this time in a variety series alongside fellow “SNL” vet Martin Short.

NBC has picked up “Maya and Marty in Manhattan,” a long-in-the-works variety show to debut in May under “SNL’s” creator/executive producer Lorne Michaels, reports Variety.

Like “SNL,” it will air live from NBC’s New York headquarters at 30 Rock and is expected to include a mix of musical numbers, comedy sketches and celebrity guests.

Rudolph adopted a similar format in her own NBC variety special in 2014.
