As ‘Jeopardy’ Runs Out of New Episodes During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Reruns Come to Save the Day

The time has come to say goodbye to brand new Jeopardy episodes… for now.

Since the coronavirus pandemic shutdown halted production on every show and film, the game-show has understandably run out of pre-recorded episodes to air, according to Vanity Fair. 

Today, Friday, June 12, marks the last new pre-COVID episode of the Alex Trebek-hosted show for the near future (or until the shutdowns are lifted and production resumes).

Starting Monday, June 15, the series will dig into the vault to air reruns and encore presentations before airing a rebroadcast of  the 2019 Tournament of Champions starting July 6.

“For the first time, we have a chance to shine a light on each individual player before we revisit a big tournament,” executive producer Mike Richards said in a statement on E! Online.

“Some of these contestants played quite a while ago, so we hope that highlighting their biggest games will provide a deeper understanding of their specific strengths and how they earned their places in the Tournament of Champions.”

While many states are lifting stay-at-home orders, the game show has to be particularly careful considering Alex Trebek is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Due to his compromised immune system, he is more likely to get infected with the novel virus.

But even Trebek is getting a little stir-crazy at home. Are we really surprised? He’s spent his whole life spearheading the game show and clearly enjoys what he does. 

“Alex is looking forward to resuming production as soon as we are able to do so. He’s told us he wants to be one of the first shows back in production,” a rep for Trebek told TVLine.

Safety first!

The Bold Type Lost Review

Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet. 

The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!

Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26! 

Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”

Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers. 

The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger is ready to turn the final page!

Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends. 

The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale

But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes. 

News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.

However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon. 

Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!

And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”

Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial. 

And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her. 

Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!

New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns. 

Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.

And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”

But at the end of the day, the show hones in on the fact that it’s about female friendship and empowerment.
 
“We’re women, we’re fighters, this is our moment, Liza,” Kelsey informs her. 
 
And if the original premise got muddled somewhere in all the love triangles, the trailer reminds you that the series was born to defy ageism in the workplace and in life in general.
 
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that age is irrelevant,” Liza tells Kelsey.
 
That’s been the lesson since day one! 
 
From the looks of it, the 12-episode final season is going to be one wild ride as it wraps up all the storylines once and for all. 
 
 
Younger will air all episodes on Paramount+ before dropping them on TV Land at a later date. 
 
The final season will premiere the first four episodes on April 15.

Younger Stiff Competition Review

It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical! 

Paramount Plus announced that the seventh and final season of Younger will premiere on Thursday, April 15!

The first four episodes will be available for streaming on that day. 

The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday. 

Those who don’t have access to Paramount Plus will be able to see the full season later in the year on TV Land. 

It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars. 

Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.

“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet. 

“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”

Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, we know these two will go the extra mile with whatever screentime they do have! 
 
Per the release, the final season of Younger finds “Liza’s (Sutton Foster) personal life is on shaky ground as she tries to stay true to herself. After a setback at work, Kelsey (Hilary Duff) doubts her career decisions and discovers a new creative outlet. Meanwhile, Maggie (Debi Mazar) gets canceled.”
