The popular game show Jeopardy! will continue following original host Alex Trebek’s death, with Ken Jennings announced as one of the first interim hosts.

“There will only ever be one Alex Trebek, but I’m honored to be helping Jeopardy! out with this in January,” Jennings tweeted Monday evening.

The show said it will resume production on November 30 with a series of interim hosts, with others to be announced soon.

Canadian-born Trebek hosted Jeopardy! for 37 seasons. He passed away earlier this month at 80 years old following a battle with cancer.
