The game show’s official Twitter account confirmed the episodes’ premiere dates after it was delayed from Christmas week. “36 years. “Over 8,200 episodes. Countless memories,” the Jeopardy! account wrote. “Tune in for Alex’s last week of shows.”
Reports also state that the late host’s final episode will feature “a special tribute to the life and work of the man who captained America’s Favorite Quiz Show with skill, style, and sophistication for 36+ years.”
Trebek died in November 2020 at age 80 after a battle with stage four pancreatic cancer. He announced his diagnosis in March 2019 but continued to host Jeopardy!, allowing him to helm the game show for more than 7,000 episodes.
