Jimmy Kimmel Live! returns this week with brand-new episodes. And while Jimmy Kimmel remains on vacation, his late-night TV show will be in the hands of two Marvel Cinematic Universe stars.

Kimmel began his annual summer vacation in June, as his contract with ABC allows him to take a few months off the air. In his place, comedy legend Martin Short took over as the first guest host of 2024.

Now that the Fourth of July holiday is in the rearview mirror, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the rest of late-night TV are ready to get back to work. And the late-night TV home of the MCU is ready to welcome two stars as guest hosts this week.

First up, Kathryn Hahn will host Jimmy Kimmel Live! from Monday through Wednesday. Hahn, who already had an impressive comedy resume, made a splash in the MCU as Agatha in WandaVision.

Hahn's performance and popularity were overwhelming, and Disney green-lit a spinoff series. The miniseries Agatha All Along is set to hit Disney+ on September 18, 2024.

Here's who Hahn will welcome to Jimmy Kimmel Live! during her run as guest host:

Monday, June 8: Adam Scott, Mia Goth, Faye Webster

Tuesday, June 9: Peyton Manning, Emma Roberts, the War and the Treaty

Wednesday, June 10: Seth Rogen, Joe Locke, Cigaretts After Sex

Another MCU star takes over on Thursday night

The Marvel Cinematic Universe will be represented again on Thursday night when Kathryn Hahn steps aside. Kumail Nanjiani will guest host Jimmy Kimmel Live! on June 11.

Nanjiani was part of the ensemble cast of Eternals that hit theaters in 2021. The actor, previously known for mostly his comedy chops, starred as Kingo. While Eternals stands among the weakest entries in the MCU, it did earn Nanjiani praise for his performance. Whether or not he'll return as Kingo remains unclear.

In the meantime, he'll host Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday. His guest will be singer Mon Laferte.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
