It will be his second time as emcee following a 2009 turn; Harris will also be hosting the Tony Awards next week.
The Emmys news was announced on Wednesday.
“I couldn’t be more honored and excited to be hosting this year’s Emmy Awards,” said Harris in a statement. “And what perfect timing – I’ll just do the exact same script I’m about to use for the Tonys. ‘And the Emmy for Best Revival of a Musical goes to Breaking Bad! See, told you it works.”
The Emmys will air live on September 22.
