Alek Trebek

Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek is updating fans on the game show's upcoming schedule, as well as his battle with pancreatic cancer. Jeopardy! will air a retrospective from July 20 to August 14, including Trebek's very first episode from 1984.

In a statement, EP Mike Richards noted:

What is incredible about Jeopardy! is that it has historical importance while remaining culturally relevant today. I know our fans will love the nostalgia while still enjoying the gameplay. A lot has changed over the years – the set, the pace of the game…the mustache! – but the ability to play along is timeless.

Trebek added of his own condition:

I'm doing well, I've been continuing my treatment and it is paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal. My numbers are good, I'm feeling great.
