Trivia fans are rejoicing since Alex Trebek, the iconic host of the Jeopardy! television game show, announced that he is “on the mend” after finishing with his chemotherapy treatments.

In an official Jeopardy! video that was released earlier this week, the 79-year-old (Sudbury-Ont.-born) entertainer says that he returned to the show in order to host its upcoming 36th season.
