The Daytime Emmy Awards are plotting their return to television this year, thanks to a new partnership with fledgling cable channel Pop.

Formerly TV Guide Network, the recently re-branded Pop will play host to the ceremony as part of a two-year deal. The Daytime Emmys were previously broadcast on HLN in 2012 and 2013; last year’s ceremony was merely streamed online at DaytimeEmmys.net.

The 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air Sunday, April 26, at 8/7c.
