Alex Trebek’s Final ‘Jeopardy!’ Episodes Air This Week

Beginning this evening, January 4, the final five Jeopardy! episodes featuring Alex Trebek will begin airing.

Trebek died of pancreatic cancer on November 8 at age 80.

These final five episodes were shot back in October; the quiz show’s producers say Trebek worked up until 10 days before he passed away.

Sony Pictures Television says Monday night’s episode will kick off with Trebek delivering a “powerful message about the season of giving,” and the final episode, which airs Friday, will conclude with a tribute to the beloved, Emmy-winning host.

All-time Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings will take over as guest host starting on January 11.  A search for a permanent successor for Trebek has yet to be officially announced.
