Just in time for production to resume later this month, plans for the new Jeopardy! host were revealed via social media.

In a post just after 5 p.m. on Monday evening, the game show’s official Twitter page announced that filming would restart on November 30.

Following the death of host Alex Trebek earlier this month, the production confirmed that “a series of interim guest hosts” would be taking over for the time being.

Starting, they revealed, with Ken Jennings.

Jennings is already pretty familiar with Jeopardy!, having won 74 games in a row and claiming the show’s “Greatest of All Time” title.

The episodes starring Jennings will air in January.

“Additional guest hosts [are] to be announced,” the game show explained in Monday's Tweet.

Prior to his death, 80-year-old Alex Trebek was the first and only host of the TV show.

The Canadian-American personality passed away on November 8, following a nearly two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Concluding their statement on Monday, Jeopardy! added, “We will honour his legacy by continuing to produce the game he loved.”
