Anthony Anderson will be hosting the NAACP Image Awards for two more years. The Black-ish star and executive producer has signed a deal to continue as host for the 47th and 48th NAACP Image Awards.

The 47th NAACP Image Awards will be nationally telecast live on TV One on Friday, February 5, 2016 as a two-hour special from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. It will be preceded by a one-hour live pre-show from the red carpet.

Anderson has won an NAACP Image Award, and has earned Emmy and People’s Choice award noms for his role as Dre on ABC’s Black-ish, a family man that struggles to gain a sense of cultural identity while raising his kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighborhood. Anderson’s many film credits include Transformers, The Departed, and he will next be seen in Barbershop 3.

As previously announced, Reginald Hudlin and Phil Gurin have signed a three-year deal to continue as executive producers for the NAACP Image Awards.
