‘Jeopardy!’ Announces Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik as New Hosts

‘Jeopardy!’ names EP Mike Richards, actress Mayim Bialik as show’s new hosts, replacing Alex Trebek

Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik will officially split hosting duties as the new permanent hosts of “Jeopardy!”

Sony Pictures Entertainment on Wednesday announced that, after a lengthy search process and close to a year of guest hosts, the “Jeopardy!” executive producer and the former “Big Bang Theory” actress will act as the permanent replacements for Alex Trebek. Trebek was the host of the popular game show for 37 years before he died in November of 2020 after a lengthy and public battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The current idea is to have Richards take over in Season 38 for regular play while the “Call Me Kat” star headlines an upcoming crop of spinoff and special event games such as the upcoming “Jeopardy! National College Championship” at ABC.

“I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to host the syndicated version of Jeopardy!,” said Richards in a press release. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined being chosen to step into a role of this magnitude. I am incredibly humbled to step behind the lectern and will work tirelessly to make sure our brilliant contestants shine in each and every episode. Alex believed the game itself and the contestants are the most important aspects of the show. I was fortunate to witness his professionalism, intensity and kindness up close and that will serve as the ultimate blueprint as we continue to produce the show we love. I am thrilled that Mayim is joining the Jeopardy! team. Her academic track record and enthusiasm for the game made her a terrific guest host. It will be a privilege to produce the primetime series with her as host.”

In an interview in January about the challenge of replacing Trebek, Richards said he wanted to take the transition slowly and noted that there would be enormous pressure on whoever was chosen.

“Alex is a legend — there’s no two ways about it,” he said. “Replacing a legend is going to be nerve wracking; if you’re not nervous then you’re not paying attention.”
