Zac Efron has landed his first-ever Emmy for the Netflix series Down to Earth with Zac Efron.

After being named Outstanding Daytime Program Host at the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, the actor took to social media to celebrate the good news.

"Get ready for the next adventure it’s going to be a good one. Love u guys," he added on Instagram following the win.

Season two is scheduled to premiere in 2022.

Zac's success comes after it was announced in the Hollywood Reporter that he switched his representation to WME – a sure sign the actor is planning some career changes.
