Jimmy Kimmel will host the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards this year, Deadline reports. Kimmel has hosted the television-centric awards show once before, in 2012.

Kimmel's back

As Deadline points out, the Emmys will air on ABC this year, so it's no surprise the network has tapped its own late-night host (of Jimmy Kimmel Live!) as the Emmys emcee. Last year, the Emmys aired on Fox, which has no late-night talk show, so Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg was asked to host. Late Night's Seth Meyers hosted the Emmys on NBC in 2014.

The Television Academy will announce the nominees on July 14th, and the Emmys will air on September 18th. The ceremony itself will take place on September 10th and 11th, at LA's Microsoft Theater.
