The “Jeopard! The roulette wheel spins as the game show continues to move between different hosts.
Season 38 of the long-running trivia show will air in 2022 with Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings at the helm as hosts.
“We are delighted to let you know that Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will continue to share hosting duties until the end of Jeopardy!” Season 38, and Michael Davies will remain as executive producer, ”Sony recently said in a statement. “We are delighted to have such an excellent and experienced team in front and behind the camera as we approach 2022! “
Bialik, 45, and Jennings, 47, both took over the accommodation after former executive producer Mike Richards was ousted.
Richards, 46, was fired from the show just nine days after taking office after discovering sexist comments he made on a podcast.
The “Big Bang Theory” star’s concert hosting was announced in August 2021, and episodes featuring her aired through November 5. Jennings then stocked her shoes for the remainder of the 2021 season.
Iconic host Alex Trebek died in November 2020 from pancreatic cancer. Since his death, “Jeopardy! Had a large number of guest hosts to do the job. LeVar Burton, Katie Couric, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Anderson Cooper, Aaron Rodgers, Savannah Guthrie, Dr Sanjay Gupta and Dr Mehmet Oz are just a few of the celebrities who have hosted the show over the past year or so. .
Jennings confessed in a USA Today profile last month that he was “just terrified” to replace the legendary Trebek. The former contestant was returning to the show as host as the first anniversary of Trebek’s death approached.
“Apparently everyone knew we were going to broadcast [this episode] on the birthday and nobody told me, ”he told the publication.
“They didn’t want to put this in my head. So I was only told after [filming the episode] that it was the spectacle of November 8, ”he continued, adding that he also wore a pair of Trebek cufflinks given to him by the widow of the Canadian native, Jean Currivan Trebek.
Jennings explained, “It’s very delicate work. The mechanics of “Jeopardy! Are formidable. There’s a lot going on at the same time and Alex has made it all so easy. But I can tell you firsthand, it’s not easy.
