Alex Trebek left some big shoes to fill, but all may not be lost when it comes to finding the next Jeopardy guest host. Ever the beacon of knowledge, LeVar Burton stepped up to the plate earlier this month as a potential host for the show––and now it’s happening!

In a tweet on Wednesday, the Reading Rainbow host shared the exciting news from Jeopardy that he would be hosting an upcoming episode of season 37. If you recall, Joshua Sanders started a change.org petition a few months back to make Burton the host. As of publication, the petition has over 248,000 signatures!

 

Now that Burton is heading to the driver’s seat, many fans hope it will be come a long-time gig. Regardless, his episode is sure to be a great one!
