Welcome back, Brian Williams!

Now that his six-month suspension is up, the former NBC Nightly News anchor is returning to television. But he's not getting his old job back — that belongs to Lester Holt now.

On Sept. 22, Williams will debut as a breaking news reporter on MSNBC, according to the network. His return will coincide with the Pope's visit to the United States. Both NBC and the 24-hour news network are owned by Comcast.

Network executives clarified that Williams isn't getting his own show; he will most likely be appearing on their various news programs as needed.

Here's hoping he and Rachel Maddow have a slow-jam news duet in their future!
