A spinoff of Jeopardy! is coming to TV soon.
The new show is titled Celebrity Jeopardy! and will feature celebrities instead of average citizens.
When does Celebrity Jeopardy! start?
The new show Celebrity Jeopardy! is set to premiere on the ABC network in the fall of 2022, the New York Post reports.
It will air from fall 2022 through the 2023 TV season.
In the spinoff series, celebrities will have an opportunity to win prize money for a charity of their choosing.
Celebrity Jeopardy! is set to be similar to Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and Celebrity Family Feud.
The president of Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, Craig Erwich, told The Wrap that a host for the show has yet to be decided.
He also spoke to Variety about the new spinoff and the details of the show.
“It’s really just about the details of the announcement,” Erwich said.
“And we just aren’t ready yet, but we will be soon. I wouldn’t read anything into it.”
Who is hosting Jeopardy! right now?
Mayim Bialik, 46, is thought to possibly be the frontrunner to host the new show.
After the ousting of the show’s former executive producer, Mike Richards, both Bialik, 46, and Ken Jennings, 47, have taken on hosting duties.
The previous longtime host Alex Trebek, died on November 8, 2020.
Trebek hosted Jeopardy! for 37 seasons from 1984 to 2020.
Jeopardy! first aired on September 10, 1984, making 2022 its 38th year on TV.
The show takes a twist on traditional game shows as the contestants on Jeopardy! are given the answers first.
In order to win, they must guess the correct question that matches the answer they are given.
The winner of Jeopardy! typically gets to take home cash as a grand prize.
Former contestants such as Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer, Julia Collins, and Brad Rutter all accumulated an abundant amount of money from the game show.
Both Jennings and Holzhauer earned more than $ 2million each.
How can I watch Celebrity Jeopardy! on TV?
Celebrity Jeopardy! is set to air on Sundays at 8pm ET on the ABC network.
It is also likely to be available to stream via Hulu with the Live TV package, like the original Jeopardy! show.
Jeopardy! National College Championship is available to stream on Hulu now.
