Jeopardy! is aiming to resume production in the very near future, The Jeopardy! Fan has learned.
There are reports of contestants being given tape dates in early August. The show has been on a production hiatus since March due to COVID-19.
There is currently no word as to whether or not current returning champion Zach Newkirk will be able to return; there is, however, a precedent for contestants not being able to return and resuming their run at a future date.
As per Alex’s interview on Tuesday’s Good Morning America, there will be changes to the set: the contestant lecterns have been separated in order to ensure contestants remain six feet apart.
The show currently is dipping into the vault of past episodes and has reruns scheduled until September 11; Season 37 looks like it will likely begin on September 14 on schedule.
