The NBC game show took a trip down memory lane as it shared on Twitter a montage of funny and endearing moments from Trebek’s 37 seasons in its hot seat.
It ended with a text tribute for the late star: “Dedicated to Alex Trebek. Forever in our Hearts. Always our Inspiration.”

Trebek filmed his last show in October while still receiving treatment for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He died in November at age 80.
The new season of “Jeopardy!” will begin Monday with show record-holder Ken Jennings as the first interim guest-host.
NBC has not revealed when it will announce a long-term replacement.
In the show that aired Monday, Trebek called on people to help others amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’d like you to open up your hands and open up your heart to those who are still suffering because of COVID-19, people who are suffering through no fault of their own,” he said in footage that went viral. “We’re trying to build a gentler, kinder society, and if we all pitch in just a little bit, we’re gonna get there.”
