Jimmy Kimmel’s calendar just got booked up. The late-night host has signed a three-year extension with ABC, new network chief Channing Dungey announced during ABC’s upfront presentation Tuesday in New York.

The deal means that Jimmy Kimmel Live, which is currently in its 14th season, will remain on the air through at least fall 2019.

Kimmel is currently the longest-running late-night host among his peers, who include Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert. His namesake show has garnered 21 Emmy nominations, winning three.

Following Dungey’s announcement, Kimmel performed a standup routine and concluded by saying, “I’ll see you next year — and from what I’ve been told, the next two years after that.”
