It was reported last week that Lynch was in negotiations for the Emmys hosting gig.
"With her background in improvisation, her incredible comedic timing and a worldwide fan base that spans all ages, Jane is the perfect person to help us make this year's show absolutely unforgettable," said Mike Darnell, Fox president of alternative entertainment said in a statement.
Nominations for the Primetime Emmys will be announced on Thursday, July 14. Lynch won a Best Supporting Actress Emmy last year for her portrayal of cheerleading coach and glee club nemesis Sue Sylvester on Glee.
The Emmys will be telecast live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, with Mark Burnett executive-producing.
