The Television Academy and CBS have picked a date to roll out some version of a red carpet for the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The annual TV awards show will take place Sunday, Sept. 19, the partners said Tuesday.

Last year’s Emmys aired on ABC as the first of the major awards shows to pull off a live telecast amid the coronavirus pandemic with nominees beamed in from remote locations.

This year’s CBS show is also set to stream live and on-demand on the new Paramount+ streaming service set to go live Thursday.


The Emmy Awards last aired on CBS in 2017 with host Stephen Colbert.

There was no immediate word Tuesday on this year’s host or whether the show is expected to follow the same hybrid format featuring a mix of remote and in-person appearances.
