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.”
