Trebek announced earlier this year that he was diagnosed with cancer but continued to host Season 35 of Jeopardy even while undergoing chemotherapy.
He has announced that he will be back for Season 36 premiering on September 9. Trebek has been optimistic about beating his Stage 4 pancreatic cancer with the love and support of his friends, family, and fans. He joked, “I have too because, under the terms of my contact, I have to host Jeopardy for three more years.”
