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!

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

 

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

Published

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
