Alex Trebek has finished his chemotherapy and is back at work on "Jeopardy!


In a new video for "Jeopardy!" Viewers, Trebek said that his chemotherapy treatments were "finished" and that he was "in the process of healing".

A spokeswoman for the show confirmed that the production of season 36 is underway.

The new episodes are scheduled to begin airing on local TV stations on September 9th.

"Let me tell you it's going to be a good year," Trebek said in the video.

Trebek initially announced his cancer diagnosis in a video message in March.

"I'm going to fight," he said at the time. "And I will continue to work, and with the help and support of my family and friends, and with the help of your prayers, I also plan to beat statistics on the low survival rate for this disease. "

He continued to record episodes of Season 35 – featuring James Holzhauer's remarkable winning streak – while he was undergoing treatment in the spring.

At the time, he joked that "I must" defeat the disease "because, under my contract, I must host" Jeopardy! "for another three years".
