Comedian Ricky Gervais is returning to host the the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, marking his 5th time as host of the ceremony. Gervais hosted the Golden Globes 2010-12 and returned for a fourth time in 2016.

Gervais said in a statement, “Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse. But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening.”

The British comic can most recently be seen in the dark comedy “After Life,” which he created, directs, stars in and executive produced. The Netflix series premiered March 8 and will return for a second season in 2020.

The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday, January 5, 2020 starting at 8:00 p.m.
