"Good Afternoon America" will premiere July 9

Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer will be going into overtime in July.

The "Good Morning America" anchors will also co-anchor the upcoming one-hour extension of the series, "Good Afternoon America," ABC said Monday.

"Good Morning America"'s Sam Champion, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos will also make special appearances on the extension, which premieres July 9 at 2 p.m. ET and will run for nine weeks.

According to the network, "Good Afternoon America" will "feature the most-talked about celebrities, performances by the biggest names in the music industry, the latest pop culture news plus offer original entertainment, lifestyle, health, workplace and consumer reporting."

Elliott said that it's "gratifying to play a role in" the extension, adding, "[I] genuinely hope our audience will come along for the ride.” 

“I am beyond excited and honored to be part of this new chapter for the ‘Good Morning America’ family," Spencer added. "'Good Afternoon America’ gives us the opportunity to reach a different audience, and better yet, spend a little more time with our morning viewers who want to be a part of the conversation and fun we plan on bringing to afternoon TV.”
