Jimmy Kimmel will host the 2016 Emmy Awards, Good Morning America announced Monday.

The 68th annual ceremony will mark the second time that Kimmel has hosted; he took the reins for the first time in 2012, the last time ABC aired the awards. (The Emmys rotate through the Big Four networks — ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC — every year.)

Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) hosted the Emmys for Fox in 2015, Seth Meyers (Late Night) for NBC in 2014, and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) for CBS in 2013.

The news was announced on GMA both on-air and on Twitter with little fanfare, edged as it was between a Dancing With the Stars announcement and a Bachelor segment, though Kimmel himself tweeted the news himself soon after.

“I am hosting the #Emmys on Sunday Sept 18,” he wrote. “Until then, have a great summer.”
