Mike Richards, and executive producer on Jeopardy!, is opening up about Alex Trebek’s final episodes.
He said, “Those final five episodes, we shot three the first day and then two the second day, and they were great. You’ll watch them, and you’ll go, “This guy’s as healthy as could be. This is not a sick person at all.” He had that much willpower. And we knew how much he was fighting, and that’s what made the performance even more impressive.”
Sony Pictures Television also said in a statement that during the week of Alex’s final episodes, there would be highlights and a tribute to him.
Alex’s final episodes air beginning Monday. Ken Jennings takes over as guest host on January 11th.
