Trebek served as the fast-witted and approachable host of Jeopardy! since 1984 until his death at the age of 80 in November, 2020.
His final appearance aired last Friday, January 8, with NBC quick to lock-in the show’s replacement hosts to ensure the game show can continue.
The comedy actress and neuroscientist will also be joined by NFL star Aaron Rodgers, as well as the show’s current temporary host Ken Jennings.
Mayim Bialik took to her Twitter page to confirm the news, recalling the time her stints on Big Bang and her earlier role in NBC’s Blossom were referenced in one of the show’s questions.
