Jeopardy! has aired its final episode featuring Alex Trebek, who hosted the game show for 36 years. Trebek died after a long cancer battle in November, and he planned to keep filming episodes. It was not known when his last episode was filmed that it would be his last episode.
At the end of tonight’s episode, a tribute video was played to honor his time hosting the series. The music used in the tribute video is “Once Before I Go” by Peter Allen/Dean Pitchford. Check out the video below.
Mike Richards, the executive producer of the series, also spoke about the final episode and Alex Trebek in an appearance on Good Morning America before the episode aired.
A new host is now being searched for at this time. The plan is to select a new host this spring after several guest hosts appear on the game show.
