– “Jeopardy!'”s season 40 will begin on September 12
– Ken Jennings will continue hosting for a period of time
– The current season is postponed due to an ongoing writers’ strike
“Jeopardy!” is set to kick off its 40th season on September 12, with Ken Jennings continuing as host for an unspecified period. The US game show’s upcoming season has faced delays due to a writers’ strike that is currently ongoing.
Jennings, who holds the record for the longest winning streak on the popular quiz show, has been hosting “Jeopardy!” since the passing of beloved television icon Alex Trebek. After winning the “Greatest of All Time” tournament, Ken Jennings solidified his status as a fan favorite and was brought on as a guest host following Trebek’s death in November 2020.
There have been discussions on who will be the permanent host of the show, but no official decision has been made yet. As of now, Jennings will continue to take on the hosting responsibilities for an unspecified period in season 40.
As a result of the writers’ strike, “Jeopardy!” was forced to postpone the current season. However, fans can still expect the show to return strong with a new season starting on September 12, 2023.
