The Jeopardy! host tweeted: “My new book comes out in June!”

The ABC star explained that 100 Places To See After You Die is “a travel guide to the afterlife, from ancient Egypt, all the way up to The Good Place.” 

He concluded: “So you might want to order it soon, just in case.”


Meanwhile, actress Mayim Bialik is currently hosting her three-week High School Reunion Tournament.

The latest 14-episode competition features 27 past Teen Tournament contestants who first went up against each other in 2018 and 2019.

The winner will be awarded $100,000 and a slot in the 2023 Tournament of Champions.

After the three-week special, Ken is expected to be on break until Thursday, March 9th, before returning on Friday, March 10th.


In the podcast episode of Inside Jeopardy!the trivia show producer Sarah Foss confirmed the hosting schedule.

Sarah said: “Ken Jennings will be back on March 10th, and then he will continue the rest of his syndicated run, which will take us through April 28th.

“Then Mayim will take over on May 1st, and she’ll take us all the way through the summer.”

The producer also revealed: “Reigning champ Stephen Webb will return, along with Ken Jennings on March 10th in syndication.”

“We’re looking forward to seeing if Stephen’s streak can continue!”

Ken will also be hosting the new Jeopardy! Masters spinoff, which is scheduled to air during the spring on ABC primetime.

The duo has been splitting hosting duties in the meantime. 

Last year, Ken and Mayim became the permanent replacements for the late longtime host, Alex Trebek.

Alex tragically passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age of 80 in 2020.


Meanwhile, actor Stephen Fry will be hosting the UK version of the hit program for the network ITV.

Stephen said: “In the United States, ‘Jeopardy!’ is a phenomenon like no other. 

“Whenever I’m in America, I do my damnedest to catch it every weekday. 

He continued: “The idea of hosting it here in the UK makes me dizzy with delight.”

The V For Vendetta actor concluded: “Such a dedicated quizzing nation as ours will, I hope, welcome this uniquely beguiling and endlessly rewarding game.”

Ken shared his thoughts on the announcement in a tweet and wrote: “Nothing gives you imposter syndrome quite like sharing a job description with Stephen Fry…”
