The wait is over for Jeopardy fans waiting to see who will be taking over for long time beloved host, Alex Trebeck.
Producers have announced two people will be taking over as the faces of the game show.
They didn’t have to look far for one of the hosts–executive producer Mike Richards will be taking over day to day hosting duties. The other new host, Mayim Biyalik, was one of the recent celebrity guest hosts.
Richards will host the classic syndicated show while Bialik will front primetime and spinoff series, including a new college championship.
Richards became executive producer for both Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune ahead of the 2020-21 season.
Trebeck hosted the show for 36 years. He died last November of pancreatic cancer.
