America’s arguably favorite TV host Alex Trebek will return to filming “Jeopardy!” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The production of the show had been paused due to the pandemic, but filming will resume with new restrictions, according to an article published Wednesday by Fox News.

“‘Wheel of Fortune’ and ‘Jeopardy!’ are returning to the studio to tape episodes for the shows’ upcoming seasons,” a spokesperson told the outlet. “The productions have protocols in place in accordance with current government guidelines to protect contestants, staff, crew, and talent from the spread of COVID-19.”

“While some things may have changed behind the scenes and on the set to keep everyone safe, fans can expect to see the same ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and ‘Jeopardy!’ they have come to love when the season starts,” the statement continued.

Trebek hinted at a return to filming during a recent health update.

“I can’t wait to return to the studio and start recording shows for the new season in September,” Trebek said at the time. “Meanwhile, my wish for all of you: stay safe.”

I am so pumped for “Jeopardy!” to begin filming so we have new content to watch and I’m so glad that Trebek’s treatment is working out so he can continue to film. He’s just such an inspiration to everyone while battling cancer and I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes next on “Jeopardy!”

The throwback shows have been fun to watch, but I’m ready for something new.
