Last November, we lost Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek due to pancreatic cancer.
Since then, the show has been able to round up a few celebrities to fill in as host this season.
We’ve seen Dr. Oz, Katie Couric, and now, LeVar Burton will take on as host!
The Reading Rainbow star and the trivia show shared the exciting news on Twitter.
We can finally tell you! Here is the final group of guest hosts to close out Season 37:
