CULVER CITY, Calif. (WTWO/WAWV) — Alex Trebek is finished with chemo therapy, and is back in the studio filming Season 36 of Jeopardy!

Trebek announced his return Thursday.

“It’s another great day at the office, and an exciting day because so many great things have been happening,” Trebek said in a video statement.

On March 6, Trebek shocked fans by announcing he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, but he vowed to fight the disease and keep living his life, including continuing to host the popular trivia gameshow.

“I’ve gone through a lot of chemotherapy, “Trebek said Thursday. “Thankfully, that is now over. I’m on the mend, and that’s all I can hope for right now.”
