Megyn Kelly will return to primetime on NBC for at least one one-hour special in early August, a person familiar with the planning told TheWrap on Thursday. The appearance is expected to be a resuscitation of Kelly's much-discussed evening show, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly."

Back in March — in a release mostly promoting her interview with Vladimir Putin — the network promised that Kelly would return to the airwaves "periodically" in the spring and summer of 2018.

"This special marks the return of the weekend primetime newsmagazines Kelly will anchor periodically this spring and summer until football season," it read, while also being careful to say that her appearances would depend on "Kelly's schedule with her weekday morning program."

‘Game of Thrones,’ Netflix Lead Emmy Nominees

  ‘Game of Thrones,’ Netflix Lead Emmy Nominees After a year off, “Game of Thrones” has returned to Primetime Emmy Award contention in a big way. The fantasy epic drew 22 nominations Thursday, the most for any series — edging out NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and fellow HBO drama “Westworld,” which each attracted 21 nominations. Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” followed with 20 nominations. FX’s “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” led all limited series with 18 nominations. “Atlanta,” also from FX, was the most nominated comedy series at 16.Netflix, however, supplanted longtime industry leader HBO as the most nominated network or platform.

For Megyn Kelly , the shift from Fox News to NBC — where she will host a daily daytime show and a Sunday newsmagazine program — will be a test of whether she can connect with a broader audience in a different format and reach another level of television stardom.

Megyn Kelly was supposed to bring star power to NBC News and a bigger, broader audience of morning viewers to its “Today” show franchise. Instead, the three-year, million bet to woo Ms. Kelly from her conservative prime - time perch at Fox News is backfiring.

Reps for the network referred TheWrap to that statement hedge to explain the delay.

It hasn't been easy for Kelly ratings-wise since she joined NBC, though she recently hit her stride interviewing prominent women in the #MeToo movement. The anchor, who was one of Fox News' most popular on-air personalities, left the network in 2017 to pick up the third hour of NBC's "Today" show.

While on Fox News, Kelly was often a lightning rod for controversy, but could also draw upon her past as a litigator to deliver hard-hitting moments. During the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, Kelly confronted Donald Trump about his past comments toward women, which ignited a nasty feud between the two that hasn't fully healed.
