Tonight’s episode of Jeopardy! may be the unannounced finale for Alex Trebek.
The game show host was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Then the pandemic shut down production. Friday night’s show is the last one that Trebek recorded.
Jeopardy! will be forced to air reruns until Alex returns to work, if he can return to work. A Jeopardy! spokesperson told “Alex is looking forward to resuming production. He's told us he wants to be one of the first shows back in production.”
In related news, TV and film production may resume Friday in Los Angeles County. Health officials released a series of guidelines for cast and crew. It's difficult see Alex Trebek risking his life. His age and health makes him especially vulnerable to COVID-19. (The Wrap)
