Alyson Hannigan is heading back to her magical roots as the host of a TV competition series featuring illusionists Penn & Teller.
The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star has been tapped as the presenter for the upcoming third season of Penn & Teller: Fool Us, a contest which challenges magicians to trick the famous duo.
Hannigan revealed her seven-year-old daughter Satyana was one of the main reasons she signed up for the job, saying in a statement, "My oldest daughter and I are huge fans of the show, so I am so excited to be hosting a program our whole family can watch together. Not to mention, Penn & Teller are genius entertainers, so any opportunity to work with them is amazing."
Hannigan replaces British TV personality Jonathan Ross, who fronted the programme for two seasons.

Zooey Deschanel, Barbra Streisand, Nicolas Cage... when common names become unique.
Keira Knightley has always baffled the world with her first name's unique spelling, but as it turns out, rather than it being creative license on the part of her parents, it was a simple spelling mistake that less than impressed her father.
Keira Knightley has done well despite the difficult start her name had
In an interview with Elle magazine, the 29-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star explained that she was supposed to be named after the Russian figure skater Kiera Ivanova but her mother got the spelling wrong when she went to register the birth. Apparently, this didn't go down too well with Mr Knightley.
'How I Met Your Mother' is approaching its conclusion.
Some questions were answered on this week's How I Met Your Mother and plenty more were asked. Will Marshall and Lily pick up and leave for Italy. Will Robin and Barney finally get married? Now that the viewers know who the mother is, will the writing team be cruel enough to kill her off? And the most important one: why should we still care about these characters?
Alyson Hanningan Is As Loveable As Ever
Not that the cast aren't worth watching for - Alyson Hannigan and NPH are just as lovable as ever, while Cobie Smulders' Robin continues to kick all kinds of tail. But judging by last night's episode and the few before it, it looks like the writing team is just about ready to pack it in.

Sarah Michelle Gellar recently tweeted a pic of her and old co-star, David Boreanaz, what are the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer up to in 2014?
We practically fell off our chair with excitement when we saw that Buffy and Angel, sorry, Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz have recently been reunited! Sarah tweeted a pic of her and her old co-star/onscreen soulmate (Buffy & Angel 4eva), also posing with Emily Deschanel, David’s current co-star.
Sarah played Buffy from 1997 until 2003
We’d love to believe that this meant a new Buffy movie in the works, but we don’t want to get our hopes up too much. Especially since Buffy creator/genius Joss Whedon is currently writing and directing the next Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is due to come out in 2015. We understand you probably have your hands full, but Joss, if you’re out there, #BringBackBuffy!
Jason Segel says his 'How I Met Your Mother' co-star Alyson Hannigan thought him ''how to be a man.''
The 'How I Met Your Mother' actor, who reportedly checked into rehab following his split from Michelle Williams last February, admitted he is really going to miss his co-star when the show finishes up in March after nine seasons.
The 34-year-old star told US chat show 'The Talk': ''Aly taught me a lot about how to be a man, I gotta say. I was 25 when I took the show.

The sitcom’s creators apologise after “racist” storyline set in China.
An apology has been sent out by the team behind How I Met Your Mother, sorry for the offence that last night's episode 'Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra' caused. The episode, which was partly set in China, was accused of being racist by some fans who used the Twitter hashtag "#HowIMetYourRacism" to criticise a scene in which the cast were shown with make-up, costumes and accents that some deemed offensive.
The 'HIMYM' Team Disappointed Many Of Their Fans With Themes Of Racial Appropriation.
The episode sees Jason Segel's character Marshall travel to China, where he met characters from Kung Fu films which were played by regular cast members Jash Radnor, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders. The three were accused of using "yellowface," which is the practice of wearing yellow face paint to make oneself seem more East Asian.
Alyson Hannigan's 18-month-old daughter Keeva Jane is a perfectionist and already wants to lend a hand with household chores.
Alyson Hannigan's daughter is a perfectionist.
The 'How I Met Your Mother' star's 18-month-old, Keeva Jane, is already turning into a domestic goddess and keen to help with household chores, despite her young age.
Alyson told People magazine: ''She's sort of a perfectionist. The other day, we were going outside after a snack, and I said, 'Where's Keeva?'

Beware, what follows is a very spoiler-y recap of HIMYM Season 9, Episode 3, "Last Time In New York"
The final season of How I Met Your Mother is going on full speed ahead (tear) and last week’s episode saw the chaos surrounding Barney and Robin’s wedding continue to unfold. Do we even need to explain that this recap will contain ALL OF THE SPOILERS? No? Ok. The couple try to find a place where they can be alone before the wedding and before “those old b***ards latch onto us like leeches.” As you can guess, by “those b***ards” they mean their relatives.
The wedding stress is finally catching up with Barney and Robin.
Meanwhile, Marshall continues his heroic quest to Farhampton. He’s making headway, but unfortunately, we’re not quite at the end of the season, so that probably means he’ll have to go through a few more challenges before making it. This week it was Wisconsin – for you non-football fans, that’s the home of the Green Bay Packers – sworn rivals of Marshall’s dearest Vikings. Without spoiling too much, things get intense.
